ALROSA mined unique yellow diamond
OREANDA-NEWS. ALROSA’s affiliate Almazy Anabara has extracted a large 34.17-carat yellow diamond. It is the largest fancy-colored rough diamond extracted by the Company this year.
The rough diamond, extracted from Ebelyakh alluvial deposit, measures 20.17 х 19.65 х 15.1 mm. It is a transparent intense yellow crystal with a small inclusion in the intermediate zone.
Before the end of October, it will be delivered to the United Selling Organization ALROSA (USO ALROSA) in Moscow, where the Company specialists will give it a more detailed and accurate assessment.
“This year for ALROSA has already hit the record in the number of large fancy-colored stones. We used to extract fancy-colored rough diamonds over 10 carats once a year on the average. This year, we have already recovered several large fancy-colored diamonds, and this 34.17-carat yellow stone is the largest one so far. The Company’s specialists are still to study the stone more in detail, but we can say in advance that it is fancy vivid yellow, which is very rare and highly valued,” said the director of the United Selling Organization ALROSA Evgeny Agureev.
