An Ebelyakh alluvial deposit was home to a stunning fancy-colored rough diamond, unearthed recently by mining company Almazy Anabara (parent company: ALROSA). 

The yellow diamond is 20.17 x 19.65 x 15.1 mm with a small inclusion. It will be moved to Moscow where it can be further assessed.

Almazy Anabara has been quite lucky in unearthing fancy colored diamonds as of late. In 2017, they extracted a pure pink diamond, estimated to be 27.85 carats.

Of course, both fancy-colored stones are FAR eclipsed by the companies largest find to date: a 51.38 carat (D color, VVS1 triple excellent cut) diamond cut from a 179 carat piece of rough (nicknamed "Romanovs"). The rough diamond yielded five large cut diamonds (76.22 carats total), and "Dynasty", as the 51-carater was named, is the biggest stone ever cut by the company.
