RAPAPORT... Lucapa Diamond Company has recovered a 130-carat, gem-quality diamond from its Lulo alluvial mine in Angola.

The stone is the miner’s 13th over 100 carats to date, and its second in that size category this year, it said last week. It found a 128-carat, white, type IIa stone in February.

The company expects to sell those two diamonds, along with a 62-carat white diamond and several fancy-pink diamonds, by June 30.
