Alrosa's largest pink diamond

A pink diamond weighing 27.85 carats mined by Russian diamond producer Alrosa last year is expected to be auctioned at $500,000 per carat. Colored diamonds weighing over ten carats are very rare.

By far the largest pink diamond previously from Alrosa was a 3.86-carat diamond found in 2012.

Alrosa accounts for about 25 percent of global production and 95 percent of all diamonds mined in Russia.
