A South African radio station broke the news, reporting the stone found was twice the weight of the previous record-holder, the Cullinan Diamond.

The Cullinan weighed about 3,106 carats when found in present-day Gauteng province in January 1905. The Cullinan was cut into several smaller stones, which now adorn the British crown jewels.

The stone was to be transported to Johannesburg under tight security, according to SAfm.
