    One of the largest white diamonds ever produced by the Argyle mine in the east Kimberley region of WA may be one of the final significant finds of Australia's most famous diamond mine.

    Key points:
    The Argyle diamond mine is scheduled to close down in 2020
    But that hasn't stop it producing one of its biggest diamonds ever
    The 28.84 carat stone will now be sent to Belgium where it would be sold
    The octahedral-shaped 28.84-carat stone, named Argyle Octavia, was discovered in March.

    "We don't see many this shape, or colour, or that clarity, generally out of the mine," Argyle general manager of operations Andrew Wilson said.

    "We've probably seen 20 of those in the last 36 years of operations, of the plus-20-carat size."

    Mr Wilson said it was rare for a stone this size to even survive the mining process intact.

    "To find one that gets all the way through our crushers, and all the way through the sorting process, out to where we retrieve it … it's quite unusual for it to be able to come out a fully formed diamond," he said.

    The last hurrah for Argyle
    Diamonds may be forever, but diamond mines are not, and with the Argyle mine due to shut down in 2020, this could be the last major diamond it produces.

    "There's a real buzz; there's a lot of people on site who work really hard to be able to find these diamonds, and to have discovered this one is a real thrill for everyone," Mr Wilson said.

    A tender process will now begin, with the stone to be whisked away to the world's diamond trade capital of Antwerp in Belgium.

    The company was unwilling to attach a value to the stone ahead of the tender process.

    "It will go to Antwerp, and through our auction process, and the market will determine its value," Mr Wilson said, adding that the diamond would be sold as a rough stone.

    "Let's hope there's somebody who's got a passion for West Australian Argyle diamonds … hopefully we have that opportunity to see it on a beautiful piece of jewellery."

    ODC MD Marcus ter Haar said: “From the first moment we saw the diamond, it was clear we had something very special. Everyone who has viewed the 20-carat polished diamond has marvelled at its unique colouration, which many see as unlike any blue stone they have seen before”. He said the diamond was a “once-in-a-lifetime” find and added that the stone is “about as rare as a star in the Milky Way”.
