ALROSA may sell two unique diamonds worth a total of more than $ 1 million at Sotheby’s auction, as the single web portal of regulations reported.
They write about the two diamonds, one of them weighing 52.25 carats with the reported value of $ 974.72 thousand, another diamond weighing 54.09 carats with the reported value of $ 195.16 thousand. The diamonds were first offered for the purchase on a priority basis to the State Depository for Precious Metals of Russia, and then to the Republic of Sakha, but both of them refused to buy diamonds.
