LSE-listed Gem Diamonds has recovered a high-quality 80 carat, D colour Type II diamond from the Letšeng mine in Lesotho.

This follows the news on 7 April of the recovery of a 114 carat diamond from Letšeng, the highest dollar per carat kimberlite diamond mine in the world.

“Although this 80 carat diamond is not of the very large size for which Letseng is renowned, it is one of the highest quality diamonds recovered at the Letseng mine and is entirely undamaged making this a significant recovery,” says Gem Diamonds CEO, Clifford Elphick.
