Petra Diamonds announced in April that it had recovered a 39.34 carat type IIb blue diamond at Cullinan Mine. The rough diamond recently discovered by Petra is described as a gem of “exceptional quality in terms of both colour and clarity”.

Petra announced that the type IIb blue diamond will be open to viewings in Antwerp, Dubai, Hong Kong and New York this month.
