Lucapa lands 46-carat pink diamond

Diamond miner Lucapa has plucked the biggest-ever gem-quality coloured diamond from its Lulo project in the central-west African country of Angola.

The 46-carat pink diamond eclipses the 43-carat yellow gem recovered from the Angolan project in January this year and the 39-carat pink diamond found in September 2016. Lucapa has already recovered ten diamonds larger than 100 ct at Lulo, including Angola’s two biggest recorded white Type Ila gems, which weigh 404 ct and 227 ct.
