More about Cullinan Surface Mine Tour

The Cullinan Diamond Mine is renowned as a source of large, high-quality gem diamonds, including Type II stones, as well as being the world’s most important source of very rare blue diamonds.

Cullinan earned its place in history with the discovery of the Cullinan diamond in 1905, the largest rough gem diamond ever found at 3,106 carats, which was cut to form the two most important diamonds in the British Crown Jewels. Many of the world’s most famous diamonds herald from Cullinan, and it continues to produce world-class diamonds under Petra’s stewardship.

The Cullinan orebody contains a major diamond resource of 195 Mcts, suggesting a potentially long life for the operation of +50 years. Come and enjoy with us exclusive surface and underground tours of the working Cullinan Diamond Mine.

This mine has produced some of the world's largest high quality gemstones and is the home of the world's largest diamond - the Cullinan (3106 ct).

Recently, a number of record braking blue diamonds have been found including a 122.52 carat diamond which achieved a value of US$ 27.6 million in 2014.

After visiting the mine, you will get the opportunity to visit the Cullinan Diamond Mine market for an unforgettable diamond and jewelry shopping experience.

What the locals say about Cullinan Surface Mine Tour.

The tour was very interesting and well conducted.


S Cooper

Excellent surface tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Whilst you don't get to go underground, undertandably, it gives you a good feel for the general workings of the mine. The exhibits, videos and walkround help you fully understand the processes and appreciate the enormous efforts needed to extract those tiny gems. You also get to stand on the lip of the massive hole where the eponymous diamond was found. Well worth a visit.
