Today Gem Diamonds set a new price per carat record at their Letšeng mine in Lesotho.   The mine already holds the record for the the highest dollar per carat kimberlite mine in the world.

Today they announced the sale of a 12.47ct blue diamond for $7.5 million dollars, or $603,047 per carat.  The sale was via tender in Antwerp, Belgium – they also sold an 82ct white diamond a the same tender for $4.8 million.

The diamond may not look  super blue to most, but the diamond will be cut in the best possible way to maximize the blue of the diamond… or at least it better for $7.5 million!
