Lucapa Releases Images of 32.2-Ct Type 2A Diamond

Lucapa Diamond Company has published pictures of a 32.2-carat Type 2A diamond uncovered at its Lulo area in Angola.
 
The D color diamond was found at the BLK_19 bulk sample.
 
The diamond measures 32x10x8mm and is the largest found by Lucapa using the new Dense Media Separation (DMS) plant which the miner commissioned in November, and is the fourth-largest diamond ever recovered. The diamond is of an irregular dodecahedral shape and has outstanding color and clarity.
 
"While the diamond appears flawless to Lucapa staff, this will need to be confirmed by independent examination," the firm said.
 
Lucapa Managing Director Miles Kennedy commented that the diamond's recovery "underlines the world-class exploration potential of the Lulo concession and the benefits of the newly commissioned DMS plant".
 
“We are continuing to recover large, rare Type 2A diamonds from multiple and widespread pits within our 3,000 square kilometer Lulo project and are confident of finding the kimberlite pipe or pipes, that are the source of these magnificent diamonds” Kennedy said.
 
Lulo is a joint venture between Lucapa and the Angolan government.
