Cullinan/Premier Mine Established in 1902, it was renamed the Cullinan Diamond Mine in November 2003 in celebration of its centenary. The mine rose to prominence in 1905, when the Cullinan Diamond — the largest rough diamond of gem quality ever found (3106 carats) and now part of the British Crown Jewels — was discovered there. It remains a fully operational mine and has produced over 750 stones that are greater than 100 carats and more than a quarter of all the world’s diamonds that are greater than 400 carats. It is also the only significant source of blue diamonds in the world – it produces 25% of the entire world’s production of gem quality diamonds. The Cullinan/Premier Mine’s open pit is four times the size of South Africa’s famous Kimberly diamond hole.
