Gem Diamonds has recovered a 14.09-carat pink diamond from its Letšeng mine in Lesotho.

The miner unearthed the “top-quality” type II stone from the deposit on November 24, it said Wednesday. The discovery comes after the company found a 77-carat yellow diamond at the mine in September.

Gem Diamonds has also found 14 diamonds weighing over 100 carats this year, including 104- and 111-carat diamonds earlier this month.
