Rare 300 Year-old Diamond Discovered In Angola

The 170-carat stone was given the name The Lulo Rose by the Australian site owner. 

The largest rough pink diamond of its kind believed to have been discovered in the past 300 years has been found by miners in north-east Angola. 

The 170-carat stone was given the name The Lulo Rose by the Australian site owner. 

It stated that the Angolan state diamond marketing company would sell the diamond through an international tender. 

The Angolan government applauded the discovery in the Lulo alluvial mine. 

Similar stones have sold for record-breaking prices after being cut and polished. 

The Pink Star, a 59-carat pink diamond, set a record when it sold for $71.2 million in 2017.
