Buy Kimberley SA Polished Diamonds in Kimberley

There are many places to buy South African diamonds, but buying Kimberley SA Polished Diamonds in Kimberley is special – for two reasons. By 2015 or possibly before, you will never again be able to purchase these Kimberley diamonds at their source – they simply won’t be available other than in resale. The second reason is that the mining of these diamonds is environmentally friendly! The Big Hole was closed in 1914, but in recent years technology has allowed for re-mining of the tailing ‘dumps’ from the Big Hole and other smaller pit mines, after which the dump areas are rehabilitated. It’s a process that is reversing 140 years of environmental damage from diamond mining in Kimberley and the surrounding area.

As stated on their website: “The old dump material currently being processed by Super Stone Mining is effectively the wasted spoils of the many famous prospectors and spectators involved in the Kimberley South African story since the chance discovery of Kimberlites carrying diamonds in the area in 1870, including names such as: Cecil John Rhodes, Barney Barnato, Charles Rudd, Dr. Leander Starr Jameson, Lionel Phillips and JB Robinson, to mention but a few. We have no doubt that the above characters and their many associates, will turn in their graves with the knowledge of how many beautiful high quality diamonds they overlooked and discarded during their mining days in Kimberley.”

Kimberley SA Polished Diamonds are a very limited selection of less than 2% of the recovered yield from the tailing dumps. They are mostly yellow diamonds of a very high quality, with some clear and some white diamonds among the selections.
