The Diamonds of South Africa

by David
(Chofu, Tokyo, Japan)

What represents forever? Diamonds. In China, by the flooding of advertising, the South African diamond means the best diamond now. But in fact, the average diamond quality of South Africa is not better than other places. It is just as famous for some world-class giant diamonds dug out here.

The control of the diamond mines is very strict in South Africa. I read an article before which says that some super diamond mine is even fenced around, any people who walk out of the mine need to be scanned by X-ray carefully, and any car which drives in is not allowed to drive out anymore.

But most ordinary people can only afford diamonds from the river, as the picture above shows. Many poor people there work everyday and hope to get a precious little white stone. This is why sometimes people call the diamond from South Africa a "blood diamond."
