Another huge diamond has been found in a mine in Botswana. The 1174-carat (about 235 grams) gemstone is the third-largest uncut diamond ever found, diamond company Lucara reports.
The find was made in the Karowe mine and comes a few weeks after the discovery of another giant diamond. This 1098-carat stone was found in another mine by operator Debswana. It was recently displayed at a ceremony where the president of the African country was allowed to hold it.
The largest diamond in the world ever found is the Cullinan. The 3106-carat gemstone was unearthed in South Africa in 1905. It was split into nine large and 96 small diamonds in Amsterdam. These were incorporated into the crown jewels of the British royal family.
