PRETORIA, September 09. /ITAR-TASS/. An "exceptional" 232-carat white diamond has been discovered at South Africa's most famous Cullinan mine, Petra Diamonds company said on Tuesday.

"The stone is...a diamond of exceptional size and clarity, and is a magnificent example of the large, high quality diamonds for which the mine is known," the diamond miner said.
