Huge diamond 1174 carat found in Karoway mine
President expressed gratitude to the mining company
Large size diamonds are being found continuously from there
New technology may be saving diamonds from breaking
Ranchi: Largest Diamond of this world has attracted many towards Botswana. A
mining company in Botswana has found a huge diamond in its mine. In terms of
size and weight, it is the largest diamond ever found in the world. Presenting the
1174 carat diamond to the world by the country’s President Mokgweetsi Masisi,
he congratulated the company for this discovery. He said that this mining
company has greatly benefited the people of the country through its efforts. This
mining company is doing mining work in the Karoway mine there. By the way,
the strange thing is that this company got another big diamond within a week
from the same mine. After the discovery of this diamond, it is believed that after
carving it, it will probably leave behind the world famous Kohinoor diamond.
The President of Botswana has expressed his gratitude to the mining company for
the benefits this discovery brings to the country and for its contribution to
development. By the way, diamonds larger than the average size are being found
continuously in this diamond mine. Statistics show that so far 159, 218 and 471
carats of diamonds have also been found there. Natural diamonds of such a large
size are not commonly found. Finding large size diamonds is a big deal in itself.
Global statistics show that about twenty tons of diamonds were extracted in the
world last year. Most of them weighed one carat or less. That is, only a few
diamonds were of real size.
Largest Diamond and few more bigger found there
diamond traders, the attention of scientists has also gone towards this. A big
diamond was also found in the same mine in the year 2019. This Botswana mine
has become famous all over the world in terms of natural diamonds. Large size
diamonds have a different price and identity. Otherwise, diamonds of very small
size are mainly used in industrial activities. Let us tell you that diamond is also
used regularly in many factory related works. The talk of this mine in Botswana
has come to the fore when Australia’s Argyle mine, which extracts the famous
pink diamond, has now been closed due to high cost. From there only small size
diamonds were being found, which are used only for industrial use. Therefore, the
company has stopped the work of extracting diamonds from the mine. Small-
sized diamonds also cost very little and are sold at a low cost in factories,
especially because these diamonds, which are used for cutting, have no other use.
Meanwhile, the experiment of making artificial diamonds harder than natural
diamonds in the world has also been successful. Therefore, the use of these fake
diamonds in the work of factories will also start soon.
Method to make more hard diamond successful in laboratory
Due to the constant pressure on the trees buried deep in the ground and due to the
high temperature there, they gradually take a solid shape and turn into a diamond.
By the way, it is believed that the world’s purest and best diamond is formed on
the sea floor because the environment there is most favorable for it. It is actually
the most solid form of naturally occurring carbon. There are scientific estimates
that there are more diamonds still present in the depths of the earth. But these
diamond deposits are several hundred kilo meters below, whereas current science
has been able to reach only 12 kilo meters deep. Many times when a volcano
erupts, these diamond particles come out from the womb of the earth along with
it. Such particles of diamonds are found on the sea coast after a tsunami that
comes after a major volcanic eruption in the sea. Naturally occurring diamonds
are actually surrounded by Kimberlite. Most of these are of normal type. The type
of diamond found in Botswana is the first of its kind in the world. Generally
diamonds of such a large size are not found from other diamond mines in the
world. X’ray technology is also being used in this mine in Botswana in the
process of extracting diamonds. Because of this, it has been possible to get
diamonds unbroken by explosion which was used earlier mining as technology.
On the other hand, it is now possible to make artificial diamonds in the shape of a
plate in laboratories as well.
