Alrosa recovered a 121.96 carat diamond from Jubilee kimberlite pipe, which is reputed for its large finds. The 121.96 carat stone has an octahedral shape and dimensions of 31.28 х 30.00 х 28.57 mm. The crystal of “2 Black Sawables 3 colour” quality is transparent with moderate yellowish hue. Small olivine, graphite and sulphide inclusions appear in this crystal.

The diamond was extracted by Alrosa’s business unit Aikhal Mining and Processing Division (MPD) at the processing plant No.14.

Amongst the preciously recovered large diamonds at the Jubilee kimberlite pipe include some diamonds from 50 to 138 carats recovered year to date. A 76.07-carat diamond was named in honor of 70 Years of Victory in the Great Patriotic War – the substantial part of World War II. Another Jubilee diamond, a 64.23-carat octahedral stone, in December was named in honor of the 40th anniversary of independence of the Republic of Angola.
