17 february 2017
Lucapa Diamond said it sold a parcel of 2,946 carats of Lulo diamonds from Angola for $3.8 million to mark its first sale for the year.
The diamond miner, which owns Lulo together with Endiama and Rosas & Petalas, said the stones sold achieved an average price of $1,276 per carat.
“The sale comprised diamond recoveries up to 31 December 2016, which included a 75 carat diamond that was recovered in November and a 55 carat diamond recovered in December,” company managing director Stephen Wetherall said in a note.
