706 Carat Diamond Found

One of 20 largest uncut diamonds in the world

SIERRA LEONE - 17. March 2017 - Christian Pastor Emmanuel Momoh has discovered a giant 706-carat diamond in Yakadu village, in eastern Sierra Leone. The country's eastern Kono region is known for its rich diamond mines. The pastor also works as a miner.

This huge diamond is one of the 20 largest uncut diamonds that's ever been found in the world. The diamond was handed over to Sierra Leone's President, who has promised that it will be all handled transparently and the stone will be sold at an international auction to the highest bidder. It is expected that the price will fetch over 50 million British pounds.

Sierra Leone is rich in gemstones

Sierra Leone is one of the richest countries in gemstones, which can be found in roughly one quarter of the country. Despite its gemstone riches, this 6-million people African country is one of the five poorest in the world, according to the UN. Diamonds illegal trade is widespread.

The country went through a decade-long civil war, from 1991 to 2002. Take a look at this 4 and a half minute long video about Diamond Mining in Sierra Leone, made in 2012.
