A 1,098 carat stone found in Botswana early this month may be the world’s third-largest diamond.

It was unearthed by Debswana Diamond Co. at the Jwaneng mine, Bloomberg reports.

It’s not yet clear how much the stone may be worth. Diamond Trading Co. Botswana is conducting a valuation that should be completed within a few weeks, according to Bloomberg.

The BBC notes that the second-largest diamond, the Lesedi La Rona, sold for $53 million in 2017.

Debswana spokeswoman Rachel Mothibatsela said: “Debswana will work with the government of the Republic of Botswana and De Beers to value and sell the diamond to ensure it returns maximum benefit for the people of Botswana.”

Debswana is a partership between De Beers Plc and Botswana.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
