They hint at the possibility of more.

Merlin Diamonds announced the discovery of two pink diamonds — one 0.039-carat and one 0.025-carat — at the Merlin diamond mine in the Northern Territory, Australia. 

The find is in addition to the recovery of a pink diamond of 0.7 carats announced in the company’s March 2017 quarterly report.

The company said in a statement that it is “encouraged by these discoveries that indicate the possibility of further pink diamonds at the Merlin diamond mine.”

The mine, the company’s flagship project, undertook pilot production in 2013. It is well-known for producing “large, high clarity, super white, and high value diamonds,” according to Merlin.

Australia’s largest diamond, a 104.73-carat stone, was discovered at Merlin.INSTORE MerlinPinkDiamonds

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
