Diamond: The History of a Cold-Blooded Love Affair

Diamond: The History of a Cold-Blooded Love Affair

Matthew Hart

for hundreds of years, diamonds have symbolized wealth, status and love; even though, in the back of these symbols lies a global of deceit, monopoly and conflict.

Hart follows the diamond path all over the world, from the basement room the place Gabi Tolkowsky, the world's maximum diamond cutter, confronted the 599-carat Centenary diamond, to the fogbound smugglers' paradise of Africa's Diamond Coast. He files the heroic fight of the 24-year outdated lady who stumbled on a multibillion greenback diamond mine at the Arctic Circle and describes the corporate that feared her so much, masterminds of the nice and shadowy diamond cartel.

Combining heritage, technological know-how, enterprise, and event, Diamond captures the essence of this important gem and the area that surrounds it.
