For those of you who are not familiar, Alrosa are diamond mines in Russia, which are also the largest of these species in the world. These statistics clearly confirm the large amount of diamonds that this group extracts annually. However, this gemstone manufacturer has recently been very excited by digging a huge diamond in one of its discoveries. Uncut pink diamond is the most expensive diamond ever discovered in Alrosa mines and this data already makes it special enough.
22.47 mm x 15.69 mm x 10.9 mm and with very small defects weighing 27.85 carats. Colored diamonds weighing more than 10 carats are extremely rare, and as far as pink diamond is concerned, the largest that was excavated in Alrosa mines weighed 3.86 carats.
Also, it’s no novelty that colored diamonds are sold for huge sums of money. For example, the auction house Christie sold the Oppenheimer Blue diamond of 14.64 carats for $58 million last year, while in Sotheby’s auction house Pink Star, a 59.6-carat diamond sold in April this year for $71 million.
The rare quality of newly-discovered pink diamond suggests that it will reach an extremely high price in the future, and the only thing that owners will have to decide is whether to sell the stone in its original form or processed version.
