Firestone Diamonds recovers largest fancy yellow diamond to date

Firestone Diamonds 54 Carat Fancy Yellow Rough Diamond

Firestone Diamonds has recovered a 54 carat intense fancy yellow, sawable diamond from its Liqhobong mine in Lesotho.

“The Liqhobong mine has become known for its fancy yellow stones but this one is the largest we’ve recovered so far and is therefore quite special,” says Firestone Diamonds CEO Paul Bosma.

Although certain segments of the diamond market are currently struggling, the demand for unique natural stones remains positive,” he says.

The 54 carat diamond will go on sale at the next tender scheduled to take place during September 2019.

The recovery of its latest fancy yellow diamond follows the recovery of a 72 carat diamond which was recovered together with a 22 carat makeable white stone, followed by an 11 carat fancy light-pink stone in April.
