Product Description

Product Description

Diamond trade industry remains a very confidential world. No one knows exactly how diamonds get from one place to another. This book explains in great detail how Canadian diamonds changed the secretive diamond industry.
The emergence of Canada’s diamond industry shook up the highly monopolized international diamond trade. More importantly, Canada’s diamond production forced one of the most avoided gripping issues that have affected all modern societies into the spotlight, rights of workers and healthy environmental practices. Eskimo Arctic Diamonds were one of the oldest most recognized Canadian diamond brands. Ethically mined and 100% pure and clean. The discovery of diamonds in Canada is a major turning point in the diamond industry. It is the first country with a sound democratic system that has diamonds. It is a sovereign country that puts supreme importance on the rights of its citizens and the value of its natural resources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read on the world of diamonds June 5 2014

Books criticizing diamonds are rare. This book creates an excellent description of the conflict diamonds and how Canada is trying to combat it. Civil war has been an integral part of everyday life in Conflict regions in Africa. The world needed better sourcing for diamonds. Canada was the worlds answer for ethical mining. In fact, as soon as geologists discovered diamonds in Canada in 1998, conflict arose as to who possesses the rights over this costly natural resource. This book describes in great detail how stubborn geologists made Canada the worlds third largest diamond producer. If you are thinking of buying a diamond, this book is a must read.

This book is very insightful. It gives a great description of how diamonds are tracked from mine to polish. It also explains how the discovery of diamonds in Canada changed the diamond trade. The author makes specific recommendations on how to make the diamond industry more transparent and less secretive. I would highly recommend this book!!!
