Graff acquires the Meya Prosperity
Following an exciting year of important diamond acquisitions, we have purchased a 476 carat stone from Sierra Leone, further enhancing our repertoire of famous and historic diamonds. The 29th largest diamond ever uncovered, and the 5th largest from Sierra Leone; the Meya Prosperity diamond was recently discovered in the Kono District by Meya Mining, and was unearthed just five days after final sign-off of the newly-built mining plant. Such a discovery marks a promising future for the region, and the mine is hopeful that the unearthed treasure and future discoveries will lead to substantial change and development for Sierra Leone.
