The biggest diamond producer of Africa
Bostwana is the largest source of rough diamonds in Africa.
Bostwana is a unique African nation with dramatic and beautiful wildlife, complex and captivating geography and a peaceful history. It can be a harsh land, a place of too little water or too much, with a sparse population and equally sparse resources - except for its diamonds. The first three diamonds were discovered in a riverbed in Bostwana in 1956 and the discovery of diamonds on a commercial viable scale occured in 1967, one year after the country's independence. Today the country is the the world's largest source of rough diamonds.
