:: Crown Recovers 52 Carat Diamond

Crown Diamonds NL has recovered a 52.51 carat stone from its mining operations in South Africa. This diamond is octahedron in shape and of gemstone quality.

The diamond is currently being valued. Diamonds of this size are very scarce and such a recovery is a unique occurrence.

Combined diamond production for the Star and Messina diamond mines for October 2003 yielded 3,502 carats which included the recovery of the 51 carat stone as well as a number of smaller sized, high value diamonds such as a 15 carat gemstone.
