Among the discoveries was a 72-carat yellow, makeable diamond, which was recovered alongside a 22-carat makeable white stone. The finding was followed with the discovery of an 11-carat fancy light-pink diamond.
The diamonds follow Firestone’s discovery of a gem-quality, 70-carat stone earlier this year, which sold for a record overall price for a diamond from the Liqhobong mine.
The three discoveries will go on sale at miner’s next tender, scheduled to take place in May.
“It was a good weekend for us, recovering the 72-carat diamond as well as the two smaller, high quality stones from within the northern, lower grade part of the pit,” said Paul Bosma, CEO of Firestone.
