Canada’s Lucara Diamond (TSX: LUC) has added to the excitement of huge gems being found this month by announcing it has unearthed a 341.9 carat gem quality diamond from its Karowe mine in Botswana.

The “exceptional colour and clarity” stone, said the Vancouver-based firm, was recovered while processing fragmental kimberlite from the central and south lobe interface of the mine, located in the central district of the southern African country.

According to Lucara, this Type IIa diamond will be sold along with two other greater than 100 carat diamonds, also recovered at Karowe.
