Gem Diamonds has recovered two large diamonds within a 24-hour period at its Letšeng mine in Lesotho, the company said Wednesday. 
The high-quality stones are white, type IIa diamonds weighing 101 carats and 71 carats, it added.

The 101-carat stone is the 14th diamond over 100 carats the miner has found this year, a record for the company. Last year, Gem Diamonds unearthed eight stones of that size.Gem Diamonds new letseng 71cts and 101cts rough

The largest diamond the miner has found is the 910-carat Lesotho Legend, which it claims is the fifth-largest in history. It discovered the stone in January, and sold it in March for $40 million, or $43,912 per carat.
