According to reports, the Debswana Diamond Company presented the diamond to Botswana President Massisi on the 16th. According to reports, the diamond is 73 mm long, 52 mm wide and 27 mm thick.


According to reports, the country’s minerals minister stated that the diamond was discovered at the right time after the diamond sales were hit by the epidemic.


According to the report, in 2020, the output of Derby Swana fell by 29% to 16.6 million carats, and due to the impact of the epidemic on production and demand, sales fell by 30% to US$2.1 billion. In 2021, with the relaxation of travel restrictions and the reopening of jewelers, Derby Swana plans to increase production by as much as 38%, reaching the level of 23 million carats before the epidemic.
