Cullinan Mine Tours
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 jeweler shopping experience.
The Cullinan ore body contains a major diamond resource of 195 Mcts, suggesting a potentially long life for the operation of +50 years.

Very great experience. I came with a group of Geology students from Germany and expected a bit of adventerous site seeing, but the Tour gave us much more, also thanks to our Tour guide Edward. We got a deep insight into diamond mining from present day to past of the 3rd biggest, still operating diamond mine on planet Earth, learnt a lot about the famous kimberlites, the regional Geology around Cullinan, and diamond processing. I highly recommend this Tour.

Eliane Lucine experienced the Cullinan Underground Mine Tour
The Underground Mine Tour is an amazing experience unlike any other. The Cullinan mine is a working underground diamond mine. We were fitted out in important safety equipment (reflective overalls, gummy boots, hardhats, lights, and emergency breathing equipment) like any miner and watched a safety video and demonstration before getting into the lift to go 700 meters underground. The tunnels in the mine were very large and I did not feel claustrophobic at all. It was a fascinating experience and I learned a lot about diamonds and diamond mining. I highly recommend it.
