    i still don't know how they are able to profit if they have to pay all this money for mining equipment and pay employees and whatnot. if they were so rare they would cost more money

    this is a crock of horseshit. diamonds are not "rare" compared to many things they are actually quite common in the earths crust. gigatic companies like de beers since the 1800's have looted raped and pillaged everyone else out of the market and tightly control the supply to artificially increase the price of diamonds to astronomical levels. diamond gems are a scam. but your wife something cool like a beautiful opal. fuck diamonds.

    I get it that geologist want to get these diamonds but I don’t see how right now it’s so poor but there are those people whom are just greedy they forget about the people who live in Africa this their home 🏡 and who gives anyone that right to basically pay the president n it’s other corrupted government partners off just to go and dig in someone else’s back yard just to get rich and forget about the millions of Africans who call it home and then to turn around and tell them you can’t dig here cause this company claimed it and so on,,. My point is time for a new president because the motherland shouldn’t be for greedy companies to make millions while the people of Africa are still living in those horrific conditions what some of these companies should do is give back to them and help them build homes,streets, teach them build their own homes, build schools and proper health care better hospitals 🏥 hospitals because we are all brothers and sisters 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯😤😤😤😤😤😡😡😡😡😡🤨🤨🤨🤨 you don’t have to like my opinion but wrong and right is right at the end of the day the Bible says you reap what you sow.

    diamonds are actually more common than quartz, diamond companies just dont want people to know this since they monopolize the industry. sad people they are

      Bracero57 _ , isn’t capitalism supposed to be an economic system where what is unaffordable today can be affordable tomorrow? If the CEOs of those diamond industries take a downturn, then there will sooner or later be affordable diamonds to make sure that they don’t become impoverished for so long. This means that Industries aren’t actually hoarding the diamonds, it’s just that they are rare.

      Yeah Russia and Africa are keeping a lot of them and the diamond industry is paying them to keep them locked up so they wouldn’t flood the industry and make diamonds worth less

      ViiV Creations. I’m pretty sure you are not using the term “monopoly” correctly.

      +David Moreno it costs a lot of money to try and mine them but also its very dangerous as competitors will literally shoot and kill you for the ground you try to mine them from, very very dangerous... they don't call them blood diamonds for nothing
