Firestone Diamonds’ stock price rose more than 11% Friday after the company announced it had unearthed a 46-carat white diamond at its Liqhobong mine in Lesotho.

The stone — which the miner recovered undamaged — will go on sale at the company’s next tender at the end of January, it said Friday.

The company also noted an increase in prices for its smaller, lower-value stones at its December sale.
