Gem Diamonds has recovered a 125-carat diamond at its Letšeng mine in Lesotho, bringing the company’s annual haul of 100-carat-plus stones to 15. 

It found the high-quality, white, type IIa diamond on December 20, shortly after unearthing two other stones weighing 101 carats and 71 carats, the miner said last month.

The total number of diamond discoveries above 100 carats beats the company’s record of 11 in 2015.

Earlier this year, Gem Diamonds recovered the 910-carat Lesotho Legend, selling it for $40 million in March. It also unearthed a 169-carat stone that month, and unveiled a 357-carat rough in October.
