Alrosa has recovered a 34.17-carat fancy vivid yellow rough diamond in northeastern Russia, the miner’s largest fancy-colored stone this year.

The diamond, found by Alrosa affiliate Almazy Anabara at its Ebelyakh alluvial mining deposit in the remote region of Yakutia, is a transparent intense yellow crystal with a small inclusion, the company said.

“This year, we have already recovered several large fancy-colored diamonds, and this 34.17-carat yellow stone is the largest one so far,” said Evgeny Agureev, director of the United Selling Organization Alrosa (USO Alrosa). “This year Alrosa has already hit its record in the number of large fancy-colored stones. We used to extract fancy-colored rough diamonds over 10 carats once a year on average.”

The yellow diamond will be delivered to USO Alrosa in Moscow by the end of the month for a detailed assessment.

Earlier this year, Almazy Anabara extracted a 27.85-carat pink diamond, the largest pink stone in Alrosa’s history.
