Violet Diamond

The rough diamond weighing 9.17 carats was recovered in August 2015, and after weeks of assessment, the Argyle Violet was polished down to a 2.83 carat, oval-shaped diamond.

The exceptionally rare diamond will showcase in June at the 2016 Argyle tender. Rio Tinto says the rare violet diamond, the largest of its kind ever found at Australia’s Argyle mine will be up for sale as part of the annual Argyle pink diamonds tender.

GIA has certified the diamond as a Fancy Deep Greyish Bluish Violet.
