Recently, one of the biggest diamonds in history has been discovered in Lesotho, mountainous kingdom of Southern Africa. The size of this exclusive 910-carat stone equals to two golf balls, which is very unusual and rare find. It’s a D color Type IIa diamond, which means it has very few or no nitrogen atoms and is one of the most expensive stones. The Letseng mine is very famous for the size and quality of the diamonds it produces and has the average selling price in the world.
The diamond is the fifth-biggest ever found. The biggest diamond discovered is the 3,106-carat Cullinan, found near Pretoria, in South Africa, in 1905. Lucara’s 1,109-carat Lesedi La Rona is the second-biggest, with the 995-carat Excelsior and 969-carat Star of Sierra Leone the third- and fourth-largest.
