Description
 
For centuries, diamonds have symbolized wealth, prestige, and love. But behind those symbols lies a world of deceit, monopoly, and war. Today, although 85% of American women own a diamond, the diamond trade remains one of the world’s most mysterious businesses. Hart follows the diamond trail around the globe. He records the heroic struggle of the 24-year-old woman who discovered a multibillion-dollar diamond mine on the Arctic Circle and describes the company that feared her most -- De Beers, masterminds of the great diamond cartel. “Combining history, science, business, and adventure, this book captures the essence of this priceless gem and the world that surrounds it.” Illustrations.
