Discovery Of Three Largest Diamonds In South Africa:
The world’s largest diamond named the Cullinan, which weighed 3106 karats when discovered in South Africa in 1905, is bigger than the combined two runners-up.
In 1908, the titanium gem was cut into 100 pieces and the biggest 530-carat chunk was sent to London, where it decorates the head of the Royal Scepter of the British Sovereign (one of the Crown Jewels of England stashed in the Tower of London.)
However, according to the data, Africa is a leading producer of diamonds and is also home to the mine where the world’s second-largest diamond has been uncovered in 2015. The second discovered diamond weight 1,109 carat stone.
Bloomberg reports that the new stone will be evaluated in the coming weeks at which time the state-owned diamond trading firm in Botswana can determine whether it can be purchased from Debswana or sell it through the De Beers channel.
