Four labourers found an 8.22 carat diamond in a mine in Madhya Pradesh's Panna district, after searching for 15 years. The worth of the precious stone is said to be worth around Rs 40 lakhs, which is a fortune for the labourers who had been toiling for years in search of it.

Panna in Madhya Pradesh is the hub of diamond mining in India, and for a long time fortune-seekers have been examining the lengths and breaths of the district in search of the gem stones.

While there are some large-scale mining projects in Panna, there are also others, individuals or small groups who also search for diamonds. These are mostly done on land leased from the government for mining. The Madhya Pradesh government leases 8×8 m plots to individuals, who wash the gravel for diamonds.

These are called artisanal mines. They use simple tools like pick axe or a hand-held tool to break up gravel and rocks in order to look for diamonds. Since the diamond was found from a government-leased mine, it has to be deposited with the authorities itself. In the case of Panna, the government diamond office in Panna, is the concerned authority.
