Almazy Anabara, an affiliate of Russia’s top diamond producer Alrosa, has extracted a large 34.17-carat yellow diamond in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the company said Friday, Tass reported. “It is the largest fancy-colored rough diamond extracted by the company this year. The rough diamond, extracted from Ebelyakh alluvial deposit, measures 20.17?19.65?15.1mm. It is a transparent intense yellow crystal with a small inclusion in the intermediate zone,” the report said. The plan is to deliver it to the United Selling Organization Alrosa in Moscow where the company’s specialists will give it a more detailed and accurate assessment, before the end of October. “The company’s specialists are still to study the stone more in detail, but we can say in advance that it is fancy vivid yellow, which is very rare and highly valued. The stone will become a worthy addition to our collection of large rare-colored diamonds that we are forming and will bring to the market,” USO Alrosa director Evgeny Agureev was quoted as saying.
