The world’s largest diamond was found in South Africa
Debswana Company stated that this diamond is 73mm long and 52mm wide. He said it was the biggest find in our history. The Debswana Company was jointly created by the government of Botswana and the world’s largest diamond company, De Beers. Earlier in the year 1905, the world’s largest diamond was found in South Africa. It was about 3,106 carats. The world’s second largest diamond, the size of a tennis ball, was discovered in 2015 in northeastern Botswana.
This diamond was 1109 carats and was called Lacedi la Rona. Botswana is the leading diamond producing country in Africa. The government of Botswana has obtained great relief due to the discovery of this diamond in the midst of the Corona virus crisis. Debswana Company sells 80 percent of diamond revenues to the government. Diamond sales have fallen dramatically due to the Corona virus crisis. This reduced the country’s income.
