The largest diamond to be discovered in over a decade is due to be auctioned in London next month. It is expected to reach its guide price of £48 million. In its rough form the diamond is the size of a tennis ball, weighing in at an incredible 1,109ct! Named the “Lesedi la Rona” which translates into “our light” in Botwana’s tswana language. It is expected to yield the largest top quality diamond that has ever been cut and polished, with a high probability that the diamond will be granted the highest colour grade possible.
