 Lucara Diamond Corp. has unearthed a 223-carat, high-quality white diamond from its Karowe mine in Botswana.

“[This year] is off to a great start, with several high-quality diamonds in excess of 100 carats having been recovered by mid-February, a testament to the strong, stable operating environment that has prevailed at Karowe since late 2018,” Lucara CEO Eira Thomas said Tuesday.

The stone is the third over 100 carats the miner has found this year. It also recovered stones weighing 127 and 240 carats last month.

Lucara will offer the three diamonds at tender in March, along with other large stones, it said.
