Besides, two more Kao diamonds will be put out to auction - a 16.94-carat fancy yellow and a 13.32-carat fancy pink rough stones.
It is worth saying that the Kao mine is operated by Storm Mountain Diamonds, a fully owned subsidiary of Namakwa Diamonds and situated in Lesotho, a tiny kingdom embosomed with the territory of South Africa. Whereas, Namakwa Diamonds is carrying out other mining works in both South Africa and Namibia.
