The third largest diamond in the world was found in Botswana

Debswana, a diamond producer in Botwana, announced on Wednesday that it had found 1,098 carats of diamonds in the South African country. According to the company, it is the third largest diamond of its kind ever found.

The diamond, which was discovered on June 1, was handed over to Botswana President Mokgoetsi Masisi in the capital, Gaborone.

It would be the third largest diamond in the world, said Lynette Armstrong, director of Debswana. She added that the discovery “brings hope to a nation in trouble.”

The largest known diamond is the 3,100-carat Cullinan, which was discovered in South Africa in 1905. The second, 1,109-carat, was discovered in 2015 at the Karoy mine in northeastern Botswana. Botswana is the largest diamond producer in Africa.
