Diamond rush grips village in South Africa | DW News



More than a thousand fortune seekers have flocked to a small village in South Africa’s province of Kwa Zulu Natal to search for diamonds.
The rush comes after a herder discovered what he believes to be a quartz crystal. The government has sent mining experts to assess the findings.
DW correspondent Adrian Kriesch went to KwaHlathi, about 250km from Durban, to do some digging.

  1. Apartheid still alive in South Africa… civilians are not allowed to prospect and keep precious stones to sell them. The government wants to keep the population in a state of poverty to control them.

  2. Easiest way to identify a rough diamond is to look at its crystal structure. Diamonds have a cubic (4 sides) structure, whereas quartz have a hexagonal (6 sides) structure.

  3. Unidentified stones that lured thousands of fortune seekers to a rural South African village were not diamonds as hoped, officials said on Sunday, but quartz stones with relatively low if any value.
