RAPAPORT... Brazil Minerals Inc. stated that it has recovered its largest rough diamond to date, weighing  4.01 carats, and plans to sell it after cutting and polishing. The rough diamond was described as having "very good appearance and no visible points or inclusions," which Brazil Minerals concluded would be able to yield high color and clarity grades. 

The junior miner owns Mineracao Duas Barras Ltda., which produces diamonds, gold and sand and sells polished diamonds and gold bars. The diamond mining concession is an alluvial operation on the banks of the Jequitinhonha River in Minas Gerais, Brazil, approximately 265 miles north of Belo Horizonte.
