MOTHER LODE: Vancouver Company Sells Biggest Diamond In 100 Years For $53 Million USD

VANCOUVER – The biggest diamond found in more than a century has been sold for $53 million, Vancouver-based Lucara Diamond Corp said.

The 1,109-carat stone, said to be 2.5 to 3 billion years old, was bought by British diamond dealer Graff Diamonds for $47,777 per carat. It will now be cut and polished.

Lucara recovered the diamond from Botswana’s Karowe mine nearly two years ago.
