Modern Marvels: Diamond Mines

The History Channel's Modern Marvels TV show is playing Diamond Mines today. Try to catch it... but if you do miss it, you can purchase it on video.

Excerpt:

Diamond Mines
Half a mile below the earth's surface, men mine for rough diamonds--a pure carbon substance. Brilliant when cut and polished, they are marketed as the most precious gem in the world. From the earliest mines of the 4th century BC to today's technological wonders in South Africa, we explore the history and technology of the diamond mine.

Google Print is in Beta: Their new Book search, taking a page from Amazon's Search within the Book

Check out Google's new Google Print.

Excerpt:

What exactly is Google Print (BETA)?
Google's mission is to provide access to all the world's information and make it universally useful and accessible. It turns out that not all the world's information is already on the Internet, so Google has been experimenting with a number of publishers to test their content online. During this trial, publishers' content is hosted by Google and is ranked in our search results according to the same technology we use to evaluate websites.

With its drilling campaign complete, Dianor Resources has identified three sets of kimberlite dykes on its Pacaud joint-venture property with Globex Mining in the Kirkland Lake area.

Right Hand Ring

The Sacramento Bee has an article on 'Right-hand' diamonds marketed to women as power sign. They mention that Halle Berry and Sarah Jessica Parker have one, however I think this idea will still take a little while to pick up steam. Will be interesting to see how it turns out once the Christmas Season is over and numbers are reported.

One thing seems to be true though, put enough marketing into something, done well of course, and it will eventually sell.

Synchroton to detect "Blood Diamonds"

CBC Saskatchewan reports...

Excerpt:

SASKATOON - The Canadian diamond industry might be one of the first to benefit from the Synchrotron in Saskatoon, now that studies are underway to determine ethical diamonds from questionable ones.
The few diamonds produced in Canada are laser-etched with a distinctive polar bear. It is supposed to be a guarantee the stones are not so-called "blood diamonds." Those gems come from places like Sierra Leone and Rwanda and have been used to bankroll deadly civil wars. However, there is nothing stopping unscrupulous dealers from engraving any diamond with the mark.

Lead in Jewelry causing medical problems

Calgary News reports LEAD in jewelry dangerous to children.

Excerpt:

Much of the jewelry contains large amounts of lead, which can be potentially poisonous if kids stick it in their mouth or if the coating rubs off.
Lesley Svendsen has been leading the fight to have all jewelry containing lead removed from the market.
Her daughter, Lindsay, got sick five years ago after chewing on a necklace that she got for Christmas.
Doctors found lead in her blood and when the necklace was tested, it was found to contain 100-percent of the metal.
Now, Health Canada is proposing new rules that would severely limit lead in children's jewelry.
