I have lived on a diamond mine in Namibia for the past 45 years. The mine is a DeBeers mine and has been operational since 1936. In that time, the mine has provided employment, education and contributed massively to the fragile economy of countries like Namibia and Botswana. These are not blood diamonds and the revenues generated have benefited many. Do you consider it a positive thing to see these two countries in particular lose their primary revenue stream once the age of diamond mining ceases due to artificial stones?
