Diamond a journey to the heart of an obsession by Matthew Hart ISBN 13: 9780802713681

ISBN 10: 0802713688

Hardcover; New York: Walker & Company, 2001; ISBN-13: 978-0802713681

Beginning with the memorable story of an extraordinary pink diamonddiscovered in Brazil in 1998, Matthew Hart illuminates the rich andobsessive world of diamonds in a fascinating, original narrative. Hart'sstory sparkles with the science and geology of diamonds: Some may be asancient as the universe, formed before the Earth was created, while thoseformed on Earth come via volcanic action and are tremendously hard to find.It introduces an intriguing cast, from the creators of the DeBeers empire atthe turn of the century to some of those who quest after diamonds today. Ittakes readers inside diamond mines in South Africa, to the offices ofdiamond brokers in New York and Amsterdam, to anonymous diamond cutters inIndia, and to a meeting with Louis Glick, the Michelangelo of his field.And, telling the dramatic story of a recent and giant diamond strike inCanada's Northwest Territories, which in some ways reset the balance ofpower in the industry, Matthew Hart makes clear what drives the legendaryobsession behind diamonds, and why should matter to readers everywhere.

Description:
New York: Walker & Company. Hardcover. 2001. 1st Edition. 8vo 276pp . Fine in Fine DJ. B&W Photographs. Recreates the modern history of diamonds, starting in 1869when a native boy in South Africa found a large crystal on a farm, sparking a rush that brought Cecil Rhodes and Ernest Oppenheimer their glory. He chronicles the sensational diamond strike in the 1990s in Canada's Northwest Territories that has shaken the fortress of the old cartel, and profiles the audacious young female geologist Eira Thomas who, against all odds, discovered near the Arctic Circle one of the richest diamond fields in the world. He watches one of the finest diamond cutters operating on a priceless stone and portrays the lives of the countless, nameless cutters in India who have transformed the industry by making valuable the tiny stones that were once considered worthless .
