Canada’s Lucara mine has had a sparkling start to 2021, with two major stones found at the company’s Karowe mine in Botswana in January.

First an unbroken 341-carat diamond was found in mine’s South Lobe on January 15, followed by an unbroken 378-carat gem-quality white diamond a few weeks later.

Karowe is renowned as a particularly prolific diamond mine, and the 378-carat diamond is the 55th stone over 200 carats to be recovered at Karowe since it began commercial operations in 2012.

Previous high-profile discoveries include the 342-carat Queen of the Kalahari, the 549-carat Sethunya, the 1,109-carat Lesedi La Rona and the 1,758-carat Sewelo.
