okay basically diamonds are a BIG DEAL
diamonds can pull poor countrys like nigeria out of poverty

the thing is, that because they are so rare and expensive, ppl get in wars over em
they smuggle them and trade em on the black market


they are worth alot, and there are fights over em...thats the simplest explanation...


btw...we just just just covered this in my ap human geo class before break

They inslave Africans and force them into mines to mine diamonds. Or is it about that one company that is in control of diamond prices....
