Storm Mountain Diamonds (Pty) Ltd is delighted to announce the recovery on 23 March 2023 of a spectacular fancy intense pink diamond weighing 108.39ct at its Kao mine in the Kingdom of Lesotho.

This exceptionally rare Type IIa gemstone is one of the largest pink diamonds in history to have been recovered. Kao mine consistently produces large pink diamonds which have resulted in some of the rarest vivid polished outcomes.

Some of these recent recoveries include the Pink Eternity (47.81ct) in 2022, the Pink Dawn (25.97ct) and Pink Palesa (21.68ct) in 2021, and the Rose of Kao (29.59ct) in 2018, and this latest find re-emphasizes Kao mine’s position as of one of the world’s most important producers of exceptional pink diamonds.

The Lesotho Minister of Natural Resources has commented of the diamond that “it is one of the most significant diamonds found to date in Lesotho”. Storm Mountain Diamonds is a responsible miner, and is now a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
