Gem Diamonds has recovered a 129-carat rough from its Letšeng mine in Lesotho, the miner’s first stone over 100 carats this year.

The high-quality, white diamond was recovered at the site over the weekend, Gem Diamonds said Monday. The company, which had been known for its recovery of large, high-quality stones, has seen output of those diamonds become more sluggish in the past year.

In 2021, Gem Diamonds recovered six diamonds over 100 carats from Letšeng, compared to 16 in 2020.
