MOSCOW, December 15. /TASS/. Russian diamond producer Alrosa has recovered a 98.63-carat large diamond from Jubilee (Yubileynaya) pipe in the republic of Yakutia, the company said in a statement.

According to the statement, it is "a transparent yellow-tinted octahedron crystal with inclusions of olivine, graphite and sulphide measures 28.96 x 28.03 x 27.30 mm."

Jubilee pipe was discovered in 1975 and ranks among the largest primary diamond deposits both in Yakutia and abroad. The deposit is traditionally Alrosa’s leader in the recovery of large diamonds. Since the beginning of 2017, more than 20 gemstones with the weight of more than 50 carats were recovered from the pipe.
