Unique large yellow diamond found in Europe

The combination of rare yellow color, clarity, and size makes a diamond unearthed at a mine in Russia’s northwest one of the most unique gemstones ever discovered in Europe.

A deep lemon-yellow diamond weighing 47.61 carats found in the Grib mine in Arkhangelsk, Russia may be the largest of its kind unearthed in this part of the world. The “exclusive crystal” boasts flawless clarity and the right shape, which makes its attractive for major jewelry firms, according to the owner of the mine, AGD Diamonds.

Another treasure uncovered at the facility turned out to be the largest diamond ever found in Europe, the company told TASS on Tuesday. The 222.09-carat gem was discovered back in May, together with a smaller precious stone weighing 127.34 carats.

Before that, the biggest diamond found at the mine was a 181.68-carat crystal dubbed ‘Archangel Michael.’

The company wants to send the gemstones for sale to Antwerp, Belgium, where the famous diamond district is located. Israel and Belgium are traditionally the largest diamond buyers, according to AGD Diamonds.
