The Potentially Largest Pink Diamond Found in 300 Years

A pink Type IIa diamond, weighing 170 carats, has recently been found in an Angolan mine, which may just be the largest pink diamond recovered in the last 300 years. 


Being named as the Lulo Rose, the diamond was discovered at the Lulo alluvial mine, which is owned by the Lucapa Diamond Co. It will be sold by international tender by Sodiam, Angolas state-owned diamond marketing company.


According to a statement from Angolas minister of mineral resources, petroleum, and gas, Diamantino Azevedo, this record and spectacular pink diamond recovered from Lulo continues to showcase Angola as an important player on the world stage for diamond mining and demonstrates the potential and rewards for commitment and investment in our growing diamond mining industry.”


The Lulo concession boasts the two largest recorded diamonds recovered in Angola, the largest being the 404-carat 4th February Stone, a white diamond that was found on February 4, 2016.
