London-listed Gem Diamonds has recovered a 212.49 ct Type II white diamond from its 70%-owned Letšeng mine, in Lesotho.

This is the sixth diamond weighing more than 100 ct to be recovered at the mine this year.

The Letšeng mine is located in the Maluti mountains of Lesotho and is renowned for its recovery of large, high-quality, exceptional Type II diamonds. The greater-than-100-ct diamonds recovered at the mine contribute 70% to 80% of Gem's yearly revenue.
