Christian Pastor In Sierra Leone Unearths Huge 706-Carat Diamond Worth Over $62M

What would you do if you found such a precious stone?

One Christian pastor in Sierra Leone recently made headlines after he unearthed a 706-carat diamond estimated to be worth around US$62,000,000. It is also believed that the precious stone could be the tenth largest diamond to have ever been found.

Emmanuel Momoh, a pastor who also works as a miner, made the discovery in Kono, an eastern region in the country. Instead of keeping it for himself, however, he decided to hand it over to the government in the hopes that the money can be used to develop the country.

The government later issued a statement that said:

“A 706-carat diamond was presented to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma…

“Receiving the diamond President Koroma thanked the chief and his people for not smuggling the diamond out of the country.”

The government mentioned that the diamond will be sold in an open bidding to keep things transparent.

Paul Zimnisky, a diamond expert, said that the stone could be “between the 10th and 15th largest gem-diamonds ever recovered.”

He also pointed out that it is very rare to find such a diamond in a small mine.


Zimnisky said:

“Most recent exceptional diamond discoveries have been made by large commercial miners that mine very large volumes of kimberlite ore and process it with advanced equipment.

“Artisanal mining tends to produce smaller, lower quality diamonds because the diamonds suffer breakage and erosion.”

Zimnisky assumes that the stone will probably sold outside Sierra Leone to access more buyers, despite the fact that the government claims otherwise.
