"Lesedi la Rona" Diamond To Be Auctioned At Sotheby's London

373-carat Lesedi La Rona shard bought by Graff

Exclusive jewellers, Graff Diamonds, has bought  the 373.72-carat rough diamond fragment which fell off the Lesedi La Rona for $17.5 million from Lucara Diamonds

“This impressive rough diamond of exceptional transparency and quality is said to be over three billion years old and was probably formed when the earth was still being created,” state Graff Diamonds. “It will now follow its destiny under the careful watch of Laurence Graff and his team of gemmologists and master cutters.”

The Lesedi La Rona is the second-largest diamond in history. When found, the rough diamond weighed approximately 1,500 carats, however it broke in two pieces whilst being excavated. Graff’s latest acquisition is the smaller of the two—the larger piece weighs 1,109 carats which auctioneer Sotheby’s failed to sell.
