As per response from one commenter, if the whole of African diamond were to be mined and exported, the world diamond market will undoubtly collapse and will bring the price of the precious stones down.
And I'm sure at that time every women will be able to adorn their ears and fingers with the best cut of the stones and of the colours that had been all these centuries being exclusively reserved for the royalties and millionaires.
And the world will see another collapse - the market monopoliser De Beers, who had been controlling all aspects of the world diamond trade all the while. And I don't think it will be too much to say that they are the one who encourages blood diamonds flooding out of the continent, besides women and the demands of course.
Needless to say, when the head of the government and his associates that are so corrupted, even if God make the diamonds fell from the sky, I reckon they'd continuing discriminating and shooting their own people to fulfil the endless greed and insanity.
Greed and power will make these people continue to suffer under the regime, however they say they want to be a democratic entity.
They will suffer similar fate of those in Palestines and other nation that had been at war decades after decades.
Cruel people makes cruel world.
