Miners in the southern African kingdom of Lesotho have discoverd the worl’ds largerst diamond weitghing in at 500 carats!! A similar stone in weight and different clarity was sold for $12 million. The diamond was found in the Letseng mine and it is known as one of the most productive mines in history. Four of the largest diamonds have been found in the Letseng mine three of them the largest of this century. The world’s largest diamond is the Cullinan weighing more than 3,100 carats before being cut.
Well, I hope they keep finding huge diamonds because if diamonds were to become obsolete then there would be lots of sad women around the world LOL!
