Shine bright like a diamond…a recent precious gem discovery is breaking records. A 1,098 carat diamond believed to be the 3rd largest gem-quality stone ever to be mined, has been discovered in Botswana. Botswana’s Minerals Minister said the discovery of the yet-to-be named stone could not have come at a better time after the Covid-19 pandemic hit diamond sales in 2020. The government receives as much as 80% of the income from diamond sales. It is the 3rd largest in the world, behind the 3,100 carat stone recovered in South Africa in 1905 and the 1,109 carat stone found in Botswana in 2015.
