(CNN) -- Miners in Africa unearthed one of the largest diamonds ever found.
The diamond weighs 910 carats, making it the fifth-largest gem-quality diamond ever found.
It's likely worth tens of millions of dollars.
The diamond was found inside a mine in the tiny African nation of Lesotho. The mine is known for producing large, high-quality diamonds.
London-based Gem Diamonds owns a majority stake in the mine.
The company says the diamond is of extremely high quality.
