what is the cost of a diamond? How many of know where does that beautiful thing come from? In many African countries, including Angola, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the diamond is a way to make money for the insurgent groups and governments (remember the difference ends in the name) who use this money to strengthen their brutal attacks on people. They are called conflict diamonds[http://www.amnestyusa.org/diamonds/] and bodies like Amnesty International try to discourage people from buying big brands who buy and sell these diamonds, including the famous Indian brand Nakshatra.
