The larger-than-life gem was found in the Karowe mine and is recorded as the biggest diamond to be discovered in over a century. The record is held by the Cullinan diamond which came in at a staggering 3,106 carats and was found in South Africa in 1905. It went on to be divided into nine separate stone with some in the British Crown Jewels.

The value of the diamond has yet to be confirmed.
