Petra Diamonds' share price lost its sparkle this afternoon after announcing it had sold its latest white diamond from the Cullinan mine at more than $15.2m (£9.4m).
The 232.08 carat white diamond, which was recovered at the Cullinan mine in South Africa in September, was bought by multinational diamond company Diacore today for the equivalent of US$65,577 per carat.
Petra's share price had dropped 1.5 per cent at pixel time.
Petra chief executive Johan Dippenaar said: “We are delighted to have achieved the sales result for this exceptional white stone, which is an outstanding example of the very high quality, large diamonds produced at Cullinan.”
