Cullinan Underground Mine Tour

  • About 4 hours


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.

These folks really were a great help. My travel into Pretoria was delayed and they helped me move my tour to the next day.

The tour itself was great. Seeing a working diamond mine is incredibly cool and a rare opportunity. Guide was incredible. Worked in the mine for over three decades and incredibly knowledgeable. Also the humor and good spirit that he injected into the tour was fantastic.

The underground mine portion was incredible. Highly recommend the tour, make sure to book ahead!
