Cape Town (dpa) - One of the world‘s largest diamonds has been sold for 40 million dollars, mining company Gem Diamonds Limited said Tuesday.

The 910 carat diamond, which is the fifth-largest gem-quality diamond ever found and bigger than a golf ball, was sold on Monday on tender in the Belgian city of Antwerp to an undisclosed bidder, the statement read.

The D colour Type IIa specimen was found in January in the Letseng mine in the small southern Africa nation of Lesotho, said Gem Diamonds Limited.

Lesotho is a small, impoverished country surrounded entirely by South Africa.

A rough diamond from Botswana, believed to be the biggest uncut diamond found in a century, sold for 53 million dollars in September.
