Arctic Canadian Diamond Company has just announced a once-in-a-lifetime discovery that demonstrates Canada's relevance to the diamond industry to the rest of the globe. The magnificent intense yellow colour of the 71.26-carat raw diamond is the most vibrant and expensive of all yellow diamonds. What's more, it's possibly the biggest fancy dazzling yellow diamond ever unearthed in Canada.
It was discovered in an underground part of Canada's Ekati mine in the Northwest Territories. The stunning rough diamond has a near-perfect octahedral structure, which is unusual for diamonds of this size. Natural diamonds develop in the octahedral shape, however they are frequently fractured from that structure over many millions of years and under harsh circumstances.
71.26 Carat Yellow Diamond
For more than 24 years, Ekati has been recognised for exporting raw diamonds to the worldwide market as Canada's first diamond mine. The Arctic Canadian Diamond Company owns and operates the Ekati diamond mine, which is a model of ethical mining and environmental responsibility. Responsible mining include bettering people's lives, building communities, safeguarding animals, and caring for the environment in which miners operate.
"This historic beautiful vibrant yellow gemstone continues to highlight Canada as a prominent role on the global diamond mining scene," stated Rory Moore, President and CEO of Arctic Canadian. "Because of appropriate mining procedures and environmental responsibility, Canadian diamonds are among the most sought-after in the world." This stone demonstrates Ekati's capacity to provide value today and in the future."
Discovered In Canada
One can only envision the incredible polished diamond that will be cut from such a rare raw diamond. Of fact, a raw diamond of this size and colour might take more than a year to design and cut into its finest form. Meanwhile, we may observe its stunning natural form and fantasise about what it will become.
