Alrosa recovers 236ct intense-yellow-brown diamond


‘Alrosa has recovered a 236-carat, intense-yellow-brown diamond, the largest natural colored diamond found in Russia.

The stone, which the miner recovered from its Ebelyakh deposit in Yakutia, is an estimated 120 million to 230 million years old, Alrosa said last week. The company’s United Selling Organization unit is currently studying and evaluating the diamond to decide whether it will cut and polish the stone in-house or sell the rough.’
