Massive diamond find in Sierra Leone
Sierra Leone said on Saturday it had discovered a diamond worth $6.2 million, declaring it one of the most precious finds of the past decade.
The stone, dug up last week in the eastern district of Kono, was measured at 153 carats, making it significantly bigger than the largest find of 2013, a 125-carat diamond unearthed in the same area, the state-run National Minerals Agency said.
“This 153.44-carat diamond is one of the finest diamonds to be found in Sierra Leone in the last 10 years,” the agency said in a statement.
