"Huge diamond fetches over 12 million" by blogman on October 13, 2006, 6:43 pm, in category General
Oct. 10 - The largest diamond found for more than a decade has been sold in Antwerp for 12,360,000 USD.

The 603-carat 'Lesotho Promise', named after the country where it was found, went under the hammer at the Antwerp Diamond Centre and was sold to the South African Diamond Corporation, owner of luxury jewellers Graff.

It is thought it will be cut into a large heart-shaped diamond and several smaller stones before being sold.

Stuart McDill reports.
