95 carat diamond is company’s record sale

95 carat from gahcho kue

Mountain Province Diamonds sold the 95 carat rough diamond but declined to release the sale price.

Zimnisky estimates the 95 carat diamond value at US $2.5 to $3 million dollars. He based this estimate on the selling prices for similar diamonds.

The rough diamond sold for three times the previous highest price it’s ever gotten for a single gem.

The 95 carat diamond was recovered at the Gahcho Kue mine in May, which is located 280 kilometres northeast of Yellowknife.
