ALROSA NAMES DIAMOND IN HONOR OF RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR
10 September 2017
A 51.91-carat diamond extracted in July this year by Russian mining company Alrosa, has been named in honor of Russia's Ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Gennadyevich Karlov, who was killed in Ankara, Turkey, in December last year.

The 51.91 carats stone was extracted from Alrosa's Yubileynaya tube on July 11, 2017, says the Alrosa announcement.

Karlov's wife, Marina Karlova and her sister, Nadezhda Mihailovna Andreasyan, reportedly took part in an official ceremony held on September 8 at the Moscow Financial Forum where they were awarded a certificate with information about the diamond.

Alrosa President Sergey Ivanov says, "In order to perpetuate the memory of Andrey Karlov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to Turkey, who died tragically on December 19, 2016, and express respect for his services in strengthening international authority and upholding Russia's interests, we decided to name the diamond in honor of Andrey Gennadievich."

Continues Ivanov: "Large diamonds are very rare in nature, each of them is unique, and Andrey Gennadievich was just as unique and an outstanding diplomat," concluded Ivanov.
