Did you know there was another huge diamond gifted by Mother Earth? A Perth-based company has uncovered a massive 104-carat diamond from its mine in Angola and believes it is closing in on the original source of the gem.

The D-colour huge diamond was recovered from Lucapa’s alluvial mining operations, 600 kilometres east of the Angolan capital Luanda. The rock is about the size of a 50 cent coin and is the fourth stone over 100 carats Lucapa has found this year. In February, it uncovered a 404-carat rock at the same mine, worth more than $20 million, the biggest diamond ever found in Angola. This is the 4th stone (huge diamond) over 100 carats uncovered this year.
