Gem Diamonds recovers rare blue diamond and 84 ct white diamond

A 12.47 ct blue diamond and an 83.8 ct white diamond have been recovered from the Letšeng mine, in Lesotho, London-listed Gem Diamonds said on Monday.
The rare blue diamond and the “exceptional quality” white diamond originated from the Main pipe and the Satellite pipe respectively.
"Letšeng continues to recover large, white, largely undamaged diamonds on a relatively consistent basis, as well as the occasional rare blue or pink diamond,” Gem Diamonds CEO Clifford Elphick commented.
The Letšeng mine was expected to continue delivering more exceptional diamonds as the group focused mining on the higher value and higher grade Satellite pipe for the remainder of the year.
The two diamonds were expected to “fetch good prices” at Letšeng's tenders, which are held in Antwerp, Belgium.
