Recovery of a 122.52 carat Blue Diamond at Cullinan

Petra Diamonds has recovered an exceptional 122.52 carat blue diamond at the Cullinan mine in South Africa.

“The stone will require further analysis in order to assess its potential value and upon completion of this process, Petra will be in a position to evaluate its optimal route to market. The diamond will therefore not be sold before the end of the company’s current financial year (30 June 2014),” Petra Diamonds said in a statement.

“The rarity of a blue diamond of this magnitude sets it apart as a truly significant find. Cullinan is known as the world’s most important source of blue diamonds and since Petra acquired the mine in 2008, it has continued to produce a number of exceptional blues.”
