Zimbabwe Marange Diamonds Draw ‘Much’ Interest in Antwerp

The first auction of diamonds originating from Zimbabwe’s eastern Marange fields following the removal of European Union sanctions has attracted “much interest,” the Antwerp World Diamond Centre said.

The auction of stones totaling 300,000 carats closes tomorrow in the Belgian city. AWDC spokeswoman Karen Rentmeesters said details of the prices fetched by the gems are confidential.
