Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!

The Heart of Eternity ($16 million) The stone that was made into the heart of Eternity Diamond was found at the world’s largest supplier of blue diamonds, the South African Premier Diamond Mine. Blue diamonds are incredibly rare with, on average, only one being found every year, and this one was an amazing find. The rough stone was 777 carats when it was dug up, and the owners waited until they had the perfect design idea before they started cutting it. The result was The Millenium Blue Diamonds- a series of heart, pear drop and oval shaped diamonds of which the Heart Of Eternity is the largest. In recent years it has been on tour at various exhibitions, including at the Millennium exhibition in London in 2000, followed by the Smithsonian museum. It was reportedly bought in 2012 by Floyd Mayweather to give to his fiancée, but no details of the selling price were ever revealed. The $16 million price tag is an estimate based on its size and color, but the finished piece could be worth far more when you consider what a rare piece it is. 9. The Moussaieff Red Diamond ($20 million) Diamonds come in many colors, but red ones are particularly rare. According to the Cape Town Diamond Museum there have only been up to 30 true red diamonds ever found, with most of them being less than half a carat. A farmer in Brazil found the rough stone that was to become the Moussaieff Red Diamond in the 90’s. At a weight of 13.90 carats it immediately became the center of attention. The William Goldberg Diamond Corporation from New York then bought it, and decided to cut it into a triangular brilliant cut. This process would mean losing 8.79 carats, but the resulting cranberry colored 5.11 carat gem is simply stunning. It was originally named the Red Shield, but was renamed by the Moussaieff Jewelers when they purchased it for about $8 million at the turn of the century. This diamond has regularly been to exhibitions, being shown alongside other ones in the Smithsonian. Were it to be sold, it would be expected to cost at least $20 million. 8. The Perfect Pink ($23 million) When it sold for $23 million in 2010, the Perfect Pink Diamond was the most expensive jewel that had ever been sold in Asia. It weighs 14.23 carats, is graded as fancy intense pink, and is set in a rose and white gold ring with rectangular shaped diamonds on either side. Pure Pink diamonds of more than 10 carats are very unusual, with only 18 examples having gone to auction in the past 244 years; none of which was classified as intense pink at the time of sale. This makes the Perfect Pink a truly unique piece, and explains why it sold for ten million dollars more than had been expected. 7. The Wittelsbach Diamond ($23.4 million) The first records of the Wittelsbach Diamond come from back in the 17th century when it was sold to Louis XIV of France. It has a rare blue color, and weighs 35.56 carats. The stone has a royal history, having been passed down through families since the 1600’s. It went from France, to Spain, and over to Germany, where it accompanied the German King Louis III to his burial place in 1921. At some point in the 30’s it was sold to raise money for the German government, and from here things get mysterious. No one seemed to know who had bought it, and it somehow got replaced with a piece of blue glas in the museum. Rumors of the actual diamond changing hands were rife in the following decades, until 1962 when it reappeared at a jewelery store in Belgium. It was sold in 2008 for $23.4 million and, to the dismay of diamond historians, the new owner decided that it should be recut, since it had originally been done in the early 1600’s. The resulting stone, now 21.06 carats, meant that both the color and quality were improved, and the estimated price sky-rocketed.

Earth | South Africa's Secret Diamonds
 
10:00
The 1867 discovery of diamonds in the Cape Colony, South Africa, radically modified not only the world’s supply of diamonds but also the conception of them. As annual world diamond production increased more than tenfold in the following 10 years, a once extremely rare material became accessible to Western society with its growing wealth. Today South Africa maintains its position as a major diamond producer. The story of diamonds in South Africa begins between December 1866 and February 1867 when 15-year-old Erasmus Jacobs found a transparent rock on his father’s farm, on the south bank of the Orange River. Over the next few years, South Africa yielded more diamonds than India had in over 2,000 years.

"The Black Diamond" : Lake Asphalt - Trinidad & Tobago [HD]
 
07:16
On New Years Day 2015, I took my kids to La Brea Village, Trinidad - to visit the local Pitch Lake. It wasn't a planned outing but luckily I carried along my camera... On arrival I met a stranger, he introduced himself to us as Ray - and told us that he was a tour guide for the lake. So we got a safe parking spot and then followed Mr. Ray down to the lake, it was there the history lessons started... he asked me to take out my camera and capture photos as we were going along, I decided to do video footage instead. So this was my visit that I wanted to share with the rest of the world, it was very informative and I met a wonderful old guy... and made a good friend. I didn't walk with any external mic, and the camera was held by hand - I do hope everyone enjoys this short documentary of the Pitch Lake in Trinidad, I provided sub-titles for a better understanding of what was being explained by Mr. Ray.

Afghanistan's Secret Billion Dollar Emerald Mines

Hidden Gems: After suffering the Soviets, the Taliban, and the War on Terror, Afghanistan has had its share of turmoil; but can 1,000 billion dollars worth of emeralds lift Afghanistan out of poverty? Subscribe to Journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For similar stories see: Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines https://youtu.be/c7iv1fef6qo Zimbabwe's Blood Diamond Killing Fields https://youtu.be/k9Bk5VIhjiY The Children Risking Their Lives In Underwater Gold Mines https://youtu.be/P1L_pxYZVwE "We have a lot of requests from Europe because the Emeralds from Afghanistan are the best in the world", Raphael says. He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

WORLD'S LARGEST DIAMOND PRODUCERS - SOUTH AFRICA
 
03:40
Download your free copy of month updated MERCURY DIAMOND PRICE LIST here: http://www.ehudlaniado.com/home/index.php/diamond-pricing/mercury-diamond-price-list For decades South Africa was the epicenter of diamond mining. The discovery of the Eureka Diamond in 1866 by a young farmer named Erasmus Jacobs set off a prospecting rush unparalleled at that time. In a few short years, numerous alluvial and kimberlite operations were established. This new supply helped to replace the dwindling supplies from Brazil and India, and make diamonds accessible to vastly more people than ever before. While South Africa still has more than ten producing diamond mines, its importance in the diamond world is slowly declining. Many mines have reached the end of their lifecycle and have moved to underground mining, which is often slow and more expensive than mining in an open pit. Although South Africa is still the fifth largest producer of diamonds in the world, with value in excess of $1 billion annually, in the absence of a major new mine discovery its importance will decline significantly over the coming decade.

World's Deepest Mine - Gold Alchemy
 
04:51
South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

12 Amazing Rare And Valuable Gemstone Discoveries
 
07:36
From the most famous gemstone in the world the Hope Diamond the a discovery of the giant Jadeite, 12 rare and expensive gems! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Heart of Eternity The Heart of Eternity weighs in at 27.64 carats, and it is another that was found at the Premier Diamond Mine in South Africa. The diamond was unveiled in January of 2000 alongside a lot of other diamonds. The shape and name of the stone were most likely inspired by the fictional Heart of the Ocean that was featured in the mega-blockbuster Titanic. This stone was almost stolen in November of 2000, but the thieves never managed to do it. In 2012, people though Floyd Mayweather might have bought the stone for an engagement ring for his fiance, but the buyer of the diamond was never revealed. 5. Massive Jadeite Jadeite is one of the world’s most expensive and rare gemstones in the world. Myanmar is the leading producer of this rare and beautiful gem, and the stone was found in a mine in Kachin within the country. The translucent, intensely colored gem is not to be confused with the more traditional jade. The two stones may be related, but Jadeite is rarer and substantially more valuable. That is what makes this discovery of this massive jadeite deposit all the more impressive. The huge stone was discovered in Myanmar in 2016 in a jade mine. The stone that was found is worth a staggering 170 million. The gem is 14 feet high and 19 feet long. The country plans to sell the giant gem to the neighboring China so that it can be made into jewelry and other items. Jadeite is worth about $20,000 per karat. 4. Millennium Star This diamond takes the title second largest top grade diamond behind the Centenary Diamond. Weighing in at 203.04 carats, it's a class D colorless, pear-shaped diamond. It's insured for over $120 million. It was found in Zaire, which is a country in Africa, in 1990. This is one of the diamonds that was featured alongside The Heart of Eternity. It was almost stolen in November in 2000 alongside the Heart of Eternity in the exhibition that was done by De Beers. 3. Great Chrysanthemum Diamond Although the name's a mouthful, this diamond maintains a reputation as one of the most famous diamonds in the world. It was discovered in 1963 in South Africa, and it weighs around 198 carats. It's an orange-brown color that is the central focus of a necklace that also features 410 other diamonds. The diamond was on display at the Smithsonian alongside the Hope Diamond briefly, and it's been on display in many other places. Today, the necklace is owned by an anonymous person who bought it for about 30 million. It's one of only 300 diamonds all over the world that measure in at over 100 carats among a lot of other stones on the list. 2. Cullinan Diamond This is another diamond with a pretty storied past. It was found in 1905 in South Africa and after is was refined it was presented to King Edward VII on his 66th birthday. Several diamonds were cut from the rough one found, but the most famous, Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, is considered the crown jewel of the British Monarchy. Cullinan I makes up the centerpiece and head of the royal scepter that is wielded by the supreme rulers at formal events like coronations. Cullinan II takes up another prominent place in the official crown of the reigning royalty. Nine different stones were cut from the original, and they each vary in size. Each stone also has history attached to them. It's been a pretty eventful 100 years for these rocks. There isn't a price tag on these jewels but given that they have been owned by the British Monarchy for so long, the price wouldn't be inexpensive. 1.Hope Diamond The Hope Diamond is the single most famous gemstone in the world. It's inspired movies, been worn by famous people, and it even has a curse attached to it. The diamond weighs in at 45.52 carats, and it is believed to have been found in India. The diamond got its start in France, though, when King Louis XIV first owned it. It was passed down by the French nobles until the French Revolution when it was stolen after King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were decapitated. From then on, the diamond has had 17 owners, including British royalty, Thomas Hope who it got its name from, Pierre Cartier, Harry Winston, and where it currently resides at the Smithsonian. Right now it is insured for $250 million dollars, and it isn't for sale.

WORLD'S LARGEST DIAMOND PRODUCERS - RUSSIA
 
02:00
Download free copy of updated monthly Mercury Diamond Price List here: http://www.ehudlaniado.com/home/index.php/diamond-pricing/mercury-diamond-price-list Diamonds were first discovered in Russia in the mid 1950s in the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic in northeastern Siberia. Interestingly, the search for diamonds in Russia, which began in 1947 following the end of World War Two, was not initiated for financial gain. Stalin understood that in order to rebuild the shattered Soviet Union after the war, he would need access to a large supply of industrial diamonds. These diamonds were required for a number of mechanical operations such as drilling, abrasive grit, precision cutting and other digging processes. However, at the time, De Beers controlled the sale of rough diamonds and Stalin knew that this left him precariously dependent. Russian geologists had recognized as early as the 1930s that parts of Siberia exhibited very similar geological characteristics to the kimberlite-rich regions of South Africa. Teams of geologists were dispatched to Siberia and these expeditions did not disappoint. In 1955, the Mirny (Mir) kimberlite was discovered and mining commenced in 1957. The purpose of searching for diamonds in Russia was to develop a supply of industrial stones for tools and equipment. Thus, when Mir produced a vast supply of gem quality stones, the state found itself in the grips of an unexpected predicament. By the mid 1960s, Russia had begun selling its gem diamond production to De Beers, a relationship that would remain intact for more than 40 years. Today Russia maintains more than a dozen active open-pit diamond mines and is the world’s number one producer of rough diamonds by value and by carat volume. Russia’s known diamond reserves have long been shrouded in mystery, but according to state-owned miner ALROSA, which controls the vast majority of diamond mining in the country, its reserves exceed one billion carats. This should allow the country to maintain its position as a dominant player in the industry for several decades to come. IMAGE SOURCE: ALROSA website

Top 10 Largest Diamond Mines by Diamond Reserve
 
00:25
http://www.ehudlaniado.com/home/index.php/news/entry/top-10-largest-diamond-mines-by-diamond-reserve In the last two decades, much has been said about an impending demand vs. supply imbalance in the diamond industry. Huge mines discovered over the past 40 years are nearly mined out, some argue, and no significant new discoveries have been made to replace them. But over the past few years, diamond production has remained fairly consistent, at around 130 million carats per year. The most recent large mine discoveries have been in Canada, with the Gahcho Kue mine being the largest. This mine is set to produce around 5 million carats per year. But how does this compare to other big diamond mines in the world? Let’s find out by looking at the top 10 largest diamond mines ever discovered, in terms of measurable reserves according to JORC standards.

Botswana has had one of the fastest growth rates per capita income after gaining independence. The country has transformed itself from one of the poorest countries in the world to a middle-income country, raising livestock is the primary source of rural income. "Over 50% of all households in Botswana own cattle” Approximately 71% of the country's land is used for communal grazing, which has been a major cause of the desertification and the accelerating soil erosion of the country.............................

Most VALUABLE Gemstones Ever Found!

Check out the Most VALUABLE Gemstones Ever Found! From the biggest and most expensive diamonds to the largest emerald, this top 10 list of extremely valuable crystals discovered by everyday people will amaze you! Subscribe to World5List: http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Check out our "Superpowers You Can Get RIGHT NOW!" video at: https://youtu.be/a6QmVdBTf0g Check out our "6 Places More Mysterious Than The Bermuda Triangle...?" video at: https://youtu.be/v9VarHk6_cY Check out our "8 Bizarre Things People Found in Their Pool" video at: https://youtu.be/gH7ywvBgXkE 11. Pink Star The Pink Star is the largest diamond in the world to be declared color wise as Fancy Vivid Pink by the Gemological Institute of America. The Pink Star was owned by the Geneva-based Steinmetz Diamond Group, who presented the 59.60 carat diamond to the world via a showing in Monaco in 2003. 10. The Vittle-s-bac Graff Diamond This particular diamond got a bit of a change after it was sold at auction, and people weren't happy about it. The Vittle-s-bac Graff Diamond was bought by the legendary Sir Graff himself, and got the diamond for a little under $25 million dollars. 9. The Sunrise Ruby In regards to the most expensive, or valuable, ruby in the world, there is only one choice, and that's the Sunrise Ruby. Why? Well, because when it was sold at an auction, it was valued and sold at $30 million dollars. There are some in the world who even value it as the "rarest of all gemstones". Some even go so far as to label it a "unique treasure of nature." 8. The Graff Pink Diamond Pink diamonds are one of the most valuable diamonds in the world today, and one of the most valued ones ever is the Graff Pink Diamond. The diamond was once owned by Harry Winston, who kept the diamond for over 60 years. The 24.78 carat diamond was very special in numerous ways. 7. Oppen-hi-mer Blue Diamond While colored diamonds are rare and special, few are as rare as the Oppen-hi-mer Blue Diamond. Why? Well, it's a pure blue that is just not found in nature very often, so to find this on a diamond of any size makes it special. Now, as for its owner, it used to be owned by one Sir Philip Oppenheimer, hence how the stone got its name. 6. De Beers Cent-en-ary Diamond The De Beers Cent-en-ary Diamond breaks the bank in many ways when it was appraised at $100 million dollars. Making it one of the most valuable diamonds in the history of the world. But its history is also important. 5. The Star of Adam When it comes to sapphires, there are simple versions, and then there are rare versions. One of the rarest of the gemstone is the Blue Star Sapphire, and in 2016, a man in Sri Lanka found the biggest one in the world. How big was it? Well, it was 1,404 carats. And though the owner remains anonymous, he values the massive blue sapphire at a whopping $300 million dollars. 4. Hope Diamond The legendary Hope Diamond is legendary for numerous reasons. First and foremost, it's an incredibly valuable blue diamond, one measured to be 45.52 carats. In total, it's worth is approximately 350 million dollars. But while it is valuable, the "curse" of the object is arguably what people associate it more with. 3. The Cull-ee-nun The Cull-ee-nun has the honor of being the biggest rough diamond ever discovered in the world. It was in a South African mine in 1905, one that happened to be owned by diamond magnate Sir Thomas Cull-ee-nun 2. The Ba-Hee-ah Emerald Here is an emerald with a very interesting history, one that has seen it nearly destroyed, stolen, and so much more. The Ba-Hee-ah Emerald was found in Brazil, near Bahia, hence the name. It is one of the world's largest uncut emeralds, which just adds to its value and beauty to some. It is so untouched in terms of refinement that it's actually embedded in rock, but it's estimated to be 341kg. 1. Koh-ee-nor Diamond The Koh-ee-nor is not only one of the most valuable diamond in the world, it's arguably the most controversial. As it was given to England under controversial circumstances, then placed as the headpiece of the literal Crown to the Queen. Some view it as priceless, others view it at around $200 million, and others view it as high as 1 billion dollars.

Zimbabwe's Blood Diamond Killing Fields

With shocking evidence now uncovered, Zimbabwe’'s diamond trade faces suspension. "We were told ‘here are the guns, sitting in the truck, do you want to stay?’" says Andrew Cranswick, CEO of the mining company who owns the rights to mine diamonds in Marange. After his company was evicted, the Marange fields were opened up to the people and tens of thousands of Zimbabweans came to dig, paying the police a commission. Yet the police didn'’t always play fair - "$15 million worth of diamonds were confiscated", says one former miner – and soon the police were replaced by Mugabe’s own military. "Mugabe needed a way to buy the loyalty of the army" says Ken Roth, "the military were ordered to kill". In the first week of November, helicopter gunships launched a massacre on the Marange diamond fields. Evidence has been collected of 200 deaths. Those who weren’'t killed were raped or crippled. "They told us if we wanted to go home we had to sleep with the men", says one woman, "the soldiers watched and laughed". Next month, the Kimberley process, the international body charged with stopping trade in conflict diamonds, will decide whether Zimbabwe should be suspended. Yet with many Western governments involved in Zimbabwe'’s diamond trade, a former delegate of the Kimberley process believes this deadly business may yet be protected.

10 BIGGEST Holes on Earth
 
10:14
From GIANT mines; to a strange, forgotten hidden paradise; these are 10 BIGGEST Holes on Earth ! HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.Umpherston Sinkhole 9..Kimberly Hole Located in South Africa; the Kimberly Hole is believed to be the largest hole excavated by hand. No dozers; no giant machinery; just sheer manpower. What was the incentive to dig a hole this big ? To NO ONE’s surprise; it was the discovery of diamonds. Between 1871 and 1914 miners extracted over 5,900 lbs (2,700 kg) of diamonds. Or wait; should we say it in carats? Well it's 13,500,000 Carats. This hole is pretty big, boasting a nice 1500 ft (463m) wide size. It was dug to a depth of 240 meters (790 feet) but then refilled with debris reducing its depth to about 215 meters (705 feet). 8.Kola Superdeep borehole 7.Mirny Diamond Mine This is a former open pit diamond mine located in the Siberian region of eastern Russia. It is 1700ft 525 meters deep and has a diameter of 3,900 ft 1200 meters making it the 4th largest excavated hole in the world. Diamonds were first discovered on June 13, 1955 by soviet geologists during the large Amakinsky expedition in Yakut. They found traces of Kimberlite volcanic rock that is usually associated with diamonds. The development of the mine happened in extremely harsh climate conditions. During winter months, the temperatures were so low that the ground would freeze making it hard to mine. How bad did it get? There were reports that steel and car tires would just SHATTER and the oil needed top operate machinery would freeze overnight. Somehow, even in those conditions, there were people willing to excavate diamonds, and the company actually made a profit. 6.Crveno jezero 5.Bingham Canyon mine This hole is commonly known as Kennecott Copper Mine among the locals and was designated a national historic landmark in 1966. It is an open pit mining located at Salt Lake County in Utah. It is the largest man-made open pit excavation project in the world and it is estimated to have produced more copper than any other mine in history,or about 19 million tons. If it were a stadium, it could seat 9 million people. Even though it is a copper mine, it has yielded a wide range of byproducts like gold, silver, molybdenum and large amounts of platinum and palladium. It has been nicknamed the rich hole on earth because it extracts approximately 450,000 tons of rock daily. And earns US$ 1.8 billion dollars per year. 4.Great Blue Hole Belize 3.Diavik Mine This diamond mine was constructed in 2001 and commenced production in January 2003. It is located in the Northwest Territories in Canada about 300 kilometers from Yellowknife. It is an important part of the regional economy employing 1000 workers and producing 1,400 kilograms of diamonds annually. The mine has three Kimberlite pipes currently being exploited. Unfortunately, the mine is expected to run out of diamonds in 2024, even after developing a fourth pipe expected to begin production in 2018. The mine sits above a mantle- a downward protruding thickened portion of the lithosphere- where relatively low heat-flow and reducing conditions have remained suitable for diamond formation and preservation for an extended period of geologic time. Another mysterious feature of this mine is the high proportion of coated crystals; the gem-quality diamonds that have been overgrown with younger cloudy rims. Recently, a study showed that the rims represent a much more recent growth phase of diamond in the deep mantle keel. At the site, summers are short and cool while winters are long and extremely cold and this area is considered an arctic semi desert. Daylight ranges from about four hours a day in the winter to as many as 20 hours per day during summer. In other words; perfect conditions. 2.Hoyo De Cimarron 1.Heavenly Pit, Xiaozhai Tiankeng The sinkhole was discovered in 1994, it is located in Fengjie County of Chongqing Municipality, Southwest China. It has a diameter of 2000ft(626m) long, and with a depth of 2100ft(662m), this sinkhole is the largest one in the world ! Due to collapses of the walls surrounding this beauty; the rainy season is a sight to behold. Many waterfalls form around it. Heavenly pit formed some 10,000 years ago when a powerful underground river, which still flows underneath the sinkhole, formed the Triassic limestone Difeng cave that collapsed and in turn formed the sinkhole. The bottom of the sinkhole is the only location where the underground river shows. 1285 species of plants can be studied here; also animals like the clouded leopard have been found in the sinkhole. So make sure you bring your clouded leopard pepper spray. 0. The “Ooops” Sinkhole | Florida

South Africa's Illegal Gold Mines
 
10:37
In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered. It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity. Everyday, hundreds of illegal gold miners, known as Zama Zamas, descend kilometers deep beneath the surface. The miners often spend weeks underground, toiling away at the country's untapped gold reserves. Observers have suggested that illegal mining is now so widespread, black-market gold arguably supports the communities once subsistent on the very same mines they worked in before they shut down. The lack of policing in the mines has seen the practice go on largely unabated. However, in the absence of law enforcement, the extensive network of abandoned mines beneath the region has become an arena to deadly gang warfare between rival factions. VICE News visited illegal mines near Johannesburg, to meet the Zama Zamas risking life and limb everyday in the violent struggle for South Africa's illegal gold.

Diamonds Have Transformed Botswana For the Better

But in Botswana, it’'s a different story. The diamond has transformed Botswana from one of the poorest countries in the world, to one of the most prosperous and stable countries in Africa. An inspiring initiative has seen Botswana’'s vast diamond reserves, worth about three billion US dollars a year, being used to share wealth throughout the nation. Trade Consultant Ntetleng Masisi says “they used diamonds to bring about health facilities, education and a markedly improved quality of life. "The earnings from our exports of diamonds have really done a lot for us.”" But Botswana’'s reliance on diamond revenue means that the whole of the country’'s future is now in the hands of the diamond dealers….

Mapping the tailings dam at Cullinan Diamond Mine. With all the Kimberlite dust suspended in solution, it acts more like a non-Newtonian liquid than water. A very strange experience.

14 Of The Most Expensive Jewels In The World

From The Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond to The Chopard 201 Carat Watch here are 14 Of The Most Expensive Jewels In The World Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #5 - The Zoe Diamond The Zoe diamond isn’t just the most expensive blue diamond in the whole world; it’s also the most expensive diamond in terms of price-per-carat at $3.3 million per karat. The piece came to auction from the collection of Rachel and the late philanthropist Paul Mellon in the 2014 Sotheby’s auction. The stone weighs 9.75 karats and is considered to be a fancy vivid blue diamond. Although many believed the gem would only fetch about $15 million, the stone actually sold for $32.6 million, making it the most expensive blue diamond in the world. #4 - The Chopard 201 Carat Watch While Chopard is well known for making exquisite pieces of jewelry, they really went over the top when the designers created the 201 Carat Watch. In addition to the gleaming white and yellow gold hardware hidden underneath, the watch is comprised of 874 of the highest grade diamonds that you could find. In the center of the Swiss timepiece, there are three heart-shaped diamonds. A pink that weighs 15.37 karats, a blue diamond that weighs 12.79 karats and a yellow diamond that weighs 11.36 karats. The rest of the watch is made up of clusters of different colored diamonds as well. The watch is priced at $25 million dollars. #3 - L’Incomparable Diamond Necklace The L’Incomparable Diamond Necklace is the most valuable necklace in the world and costs an incredible $55 million dollars to call yours. The piece was created by the famed Mouawad firm and features the world’s largest internally flawless diamond. The center diamond, referred to as the “incomparable” diamond weighs 407.48 karats, an astounding weight. What better to compliment a massive yellow diamond than 230 karats worth of smaller diamonds. That craziest part about the diamond isn’t its size or value, but rather the means in which we can to have this spectacular piece. In the 1980’s, a young girl was playing in a rubble pile in the Democratic Republic of Congo when she came across a funny rock. After closer inspection from adults, the rock was discovered to be not a rock, but an 890 karat rough diamond instead. After being sold numerous times, the diamond underwent four years of studying and cutting to reach the point it’s at today. #2 - The Pink Star Diamond Ring Up until November 2013, the Graff Pink diamond held the record for being the most expensive diamond ring ever sold at auction. The massive center stone weighs 59.6 karats and was sold at Sotheby’s auction for $83 million. The diamond you see here was cut from a 132.5 karat rough diamond mined in southern Africa. The ring was sold to Issac Wolf for $82 million dollars during the Sotheby’s auction, but it was later returned to Sotheby’s after he defaulted on the payment. After its return, the ring was revalued at $72 million dollars. #1 - The Wittelsbach-Graff Diamond When this blue diamond was first discovered, it weighed 35.56 karats and lived in both the Austrian and the Bavarian Crown Jewels. In 2008, a London jeweler, named Laurence Graff, bought the stone for $23.4 million and started to alter its appearance. Jewelers around the world were infuriated with the move, but Gaff had already removed nearly 4.5 karats from the diamond. The move, which actually enhanced its clarity and value, allowed Graff to sell the jewel to the Qatari royal family for a whopping $80 million dollars. Which, in turn, probably made the other jewelers even more upset.
