Petra Diamonds said it had recovered 100.83 carat gem-quality diamond at its Cullinan mine in South Africa.
The so-called 'D-colour Type II' discovery followed the recent recovery of a 6.12 carat Type II blue stone at Cullinan.
'These recoveries demonstrate the prevalence of these types of stones in the Cullinan orebody as well as the ability of the mine's plant to recover the full spectrum of diamonds,' the company said.
'Both stones will be included in the company's upcoming March 2019 tender.'
