It has been reported that a 227-carat diamond, the 2nd largest ever in Angola, has been discovered at the Lulo Diamond Project mine east of the capital Luanda, Australian miner Lucapa Diamond has reported.
Prior to this a 404-carat stone was also found in 2007, said Lucapa.
This big discovery has revealed the great potential of the Lulo Kimberlite drilling programme, the Australian firm has stated in a statement.
Angola is the world’s 4th largest diamond producer by value and the majority of the revenue for the country depends on the export of diamonds.
