The largest uncut diamond in the world failed to find a buyer during an auction at Sotheby’s London on Wednesday, June 29. While bidding reached $61 million, the 1,109-carat stunner fell short of its minimum reserve, which was not disclosed. The stone was discovered in 2015 in the Lucara mine in Botswana. The current auction record for an uncut stone was set in May, when an 813-carat diamond sold for $63 million.
