Second large diamond in a year unearthed in Sierra Leone
Another huge diamond has been released from the Earth's clutches following an astounding discovery in the West African country earlier this year.
Sierra Leone's Minerals Agency announced on Saturday that a 476-carat diamond was discovered in the Kono district – the same eastern part of the country where a local pastor unearthed a 709.1-carat stone in March.
Pastor Emmanuel Momoh's discovery was the biggest diamond to be found in Sierra Leone since 1972, when the 969-carat Star of Sierra Leone was dug up by miners.
