South Africa, a diamond producing country

South African diamond

South Africa is known as a diamond producing country. I tried to find out about diamond’s history. It was a diamond rush that made large-scale diamond mining possible. This occurrence was started because a diamond was found at Orange River in South Africa. I was surprised at this fact, because diamond’s history is very shorter than I think.

Now, South Africa is the largest diamond producing country of all over the world. It’s certain that South African diamonds are imported to Japan. I didn’t have much knowledge about South Africa, and I thought this country didn’t have so much relation with Japan.

But it often happens that things which exist in our daily life actually come from a far away country. I had felt South Africa was a far away country, but I began to feel this country is close to me thanks to diamonds.
