Petra Diamonds Unveils Super Blue
A 122.53 carat blue piece of rough was unveiled at Petra Diamonds this week.
The Cullilan Mine is one of the oldest mines in South Africa being in operation for 111 years. The mine, owned and operated by Petra Diamonds has produced some of the most famous diamonds in history. This diamond is certainly no exception with it being one of the largest blue diamonds ever found.
Petra said the stone would be sold after it has “analyzed the diamond to assess its potential value…and… its optimal route to market.”
