ALROSA Finds 105.6-carat Diamond at Jubilee Pipe

ALROSA (MCX:ALNU) announced the recovery of a 105.6-carat diamond from its Jubilee kimberlite pipe.

As quoted in the press release:

The diamond of “4 Black Sawables 2 colour” quality has octahedral shape; it is transparent, with moderate yellowish hue. There are small olivine, graphite and sulphide inclusions in this crystal.

Jubilee pipe is famous for its large finds. A few diamonds from 50 to 120 carats were recovered from the deposit year to date. The fact of extraction of one of them, a 76.07-carat diamond, was named in honor of 70 Years of Victory in the Great Patriotic War – the substantial part of World War II. Another Jubilee diamond, a 64.23-carat octahedral stone, in December was named in honor of the 40th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Angola.
