1. The Cullinan
2. The Lesedi La Rona
The Lesedi La Rona, or ‘Our Life’ in Tswana (the language of Botswana), is the second-largest colourless diamond in the world. The rough diamond was found in the Karowe mine in 2015 and weighed 1,109 carats. A year later, the rough stone was sold for $53 million.
3. The Excelsior Diamond
With a scale of 995.2 carats the Excelsior Diamond takes third place in the line-up. Found in South Africa, it took a long time for the diamond to be sold. Apparently, there was no one who could afford it. After some time, it was sent to Amsterdam to be cut into 10 smaller precious stones. The largest diamond, Excelsior I, was eventually sold for $2.64 million.
4. The Star of Sierra Leone
The Star of Sierra Leone of 968.9 carats is the largest diamond ever extracted from the mine with the same name. It was soon sold to Harry Winston for a $2.5 million spot price, who had it cut in 17 separate diamonds. The largest precious stone left was still 54 carats.
5. The Lesotho Legend
This stone, the size of two golf balls, weighs a pretty 910 carats and thus takes fifth place. The diamond is not only very large but also has a D-colour sorting and an IIa clarity score. These are the best scores a colourless diamond can get. As a result, the Lesotho legend was sold for over $40 million during the Antwerp Diamond Tender.
