Argyle Mine finds Red Diamonds

Argyle Mine finds Red Diamonds
The Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia's Kimberley has dug up three extremely rare red diamonds. In the last 30 years, Argyle has only found nine red diamonds, including the three which are now on sale at its annual Argyle Pink Diamonds Tender.

Rio Tinto's Robyn Ellison expects the jewels to attract a hefty price tag. "Well,the skies the limit really with diamonds such as these. We will take these red diamonds around the world.

"At the end of the process, come October, the market will determine the price, but certainly north of a million dollars a carat is not unusual."
