It is a lamproite pipe intrusive into Proterozoic flat-lying quartz arenites.

Largest diamond producer in India.

Production started prior to 1827. Produced 80,000 carats in 2004-2005. The mine stopped production in 2005 and reopened in 2009. Some details of diamond distribution, size, grade are given by Chatterjee & Rao (1995).

Reportedly the only primary diamond-bearing kimberlite pipe in India [Durnez, 2008].

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Proterozoic : 2500 Ma to 541 ± 1.0 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded on mindat.org for this locality and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
