Gem Diamonds has recovered a rare 12.47 carat blue diamond and an 83.8 carat, exceptional quality, white diamond from the Letšeng mine in Lesotho.

Gem Diamonds, the LSE-listed high value diamond producer, says that both diamonds are expected to fetch good prices at Letšeng‘s tenders held in Antwerp, Belgium. The blue diamond was recovered from the main pipe, whereas the 83.8 carat white diamond was recovered from the satellite pipe.

Letšeng continues to recover large, white, largely undamaged diamonds on a relatively consistent basis as well as the occasional rare blue or pink diamond,” says Clifford Elphick, Gem Diamonds. “As mining focuses on the higher value and higher grade satellite pipe during the latter part of this year, it is expected that Letšeng will continue to produce more of these exceptional diamonds.”
