Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world and has also been the background of the movie "Blood Diamonds." However, its territory is rich in minerals, mainly have diamonds, gold, rutile, etc., so its economy is also mainly dependent on mining.

塞拉利昂是全球最贫穷的国家之一,也曾是电影《血钻》的故事背景。但其境内矿藏丰富,主要有钻石、黄金、金红石等,所以其经济也主要依赖于矿业。


As early as 1972, the Republic of Sierra Leone had dug 969 grams of rough diamonds. The diamond, weighing 706 karats, was found again in Sierra Leone in March this year and received $ 7.79 million (about 51.72 million RMB) at the auction in May. However, at that time, the government thought the amount was too low and ultimately chose not to sell it, which resulting in a liquidation.

早在1972年的时候,塞拉利昂共和国就曾挖到969克钻石原石。而今年三月份又在塞拉利昂发现了这颗重达706克拉的钻石,这颗钻石在5月举行的拍卖会上收到了779万美元(约合人民币5172万)的报价。但当时政府认为金额太低,最终选择不愿意出售而导致流标。

Yet in just over eight months, Sierra Leone announced the dug up of a 476-carat diamond again, though less than the "super-diamond" previously discovered. However, a preliminary assessment shows that the diamond is the 29th largest diamond ever discovered in the world.

然而只隔了仅仅8个多月,塞拉利昂再度宣布挖出了一颗476克拉的钻石,虽然不及此前发现的“超级钻石”。但初步评估表明,这颗钻石是有史以来发现的第29大钻石。


It is reported that this diamond was found in the Kono area east of Sierra Leone. Two large diamonds were also found as the big diamond, they are 19.70 carats and 27.93 carats respectively. Most diamond producers in Sierra Leone are in Kono District, where the 706 carat diamonds previously discovered were also discovered.

据悉,这颗钻石是在塞拉利昂东部的科诺区被发现的。与这块大钻石同时被发现的还有两块小钻石,分别为19.70克拉和27.93克拉。塞拉利昂大部分钻石生产商都在科诺区,之前发现的706克拉钻石也是在这里发现的。

And the specific value is still can’t assess of this diamond. Diamond was found in a local priest, he handed the diamond to the government, hoping to use in the national economy. The government also said the proceeds from the auction will be devoted to national development, especially electricity, drinking water systems, medical facilities and education.

而关于这颗钻石的具体价值,目前还无法评估。发现钻石的是当地的一枚牧师,他把钻石交给政府,希望用在国家经济上。政府也表示拍卖后得到的款目会致力于国家发展,尤其是电力、饮水系统、医疗设施和教育方面。
