It said the 130 carat diamond adds to the current inventory of high-value large Special run-of-mine diamonds, including top colour white diamonds, weighing 128 carats and 62 carats, as well as a number of fancy pink coloured diamonds. 
The majority of the diamond inventory was scheduled for sale this quarter by Sociedade Mineira Do Lulo.
