The world's largest diamond has found its owner
English jeweler Lawrence Graff bought the largest diamond Lesedi La Rona found over the past 100 years, he is also translated "Our light". The size of the tombstone is 1109 carats and he cost the British $ 53 million.
The diamond found was in Africa in 2015, and in June 2016, the gemstone that matches the size of the tennis ball was placed at one of the international auctions. Representatives of the Canadian company Lucara Diamond, who were those who found the diamond, expected, however, a slightly higher amount of profit - at least $ 70 million, but did not happen as it was supposed to. The new owner, Lawrence Graff, has promised the press that he and his specialists at the Graff Diamonds jewelry company "will work day and night to pay tribute to this gift that gave nature and only the stone itself will determine how to cut it better."
It should be noted that Lesedi La Rona is inferior to the size of the only diamond Cullinan, which was found in 1905 in South Africa. Originally, this diamond was 3,106 carats, but subsequently it was split into a large number of individual parts.
