Petra recovers 23-carat pink diamond

Petra Diamonds has announced the recovery of a 23.16-carat pink diamond from its Williamson mine in Tanzania.

The pink diamond is described as having “exceptional colour and clarity” and is an example of the high-quality pink diamonds for which Williamson is known. Petra said it is its “most significant” recovery from the mine to date.

A statement from the company said: “Pink diamonds are only found in a handful of mines throughout the world and their rarity ensures that they are one of the most highly coveted of all the fancy colours.”

The diamond will now be offered for sale by appointment in Antwerp as part of Petra’s December auction.
