Merlin Diamonds uncover 5th largest diamond

The company Merlin Diamonds has uncovered rough diamonds at the Merlin diamond mine in Northern Territory including a 35.26 carat brown diamond, which makes its the fifth largest diamond discovered in Australia.

Other diamonds also discovered include a 14.6 carat brown diamond and a number of smaller white diamonds.

This discovery follows the recent discovery of a rare blue diamond in December.

The Merlin diamond mine is known for its high quality large super white diamonds and Australia’s largest diamond ever found.

These recent diamond recoveries continue to demonstrate the potential the mine has to host large diamonds.

As the company continues operations at the Merlin diamond mine, investors will be leveraged to further diamond discoveries.
