WORLDS LARGEST GEM STORE
The igneous host rock in which many Diamonds, Garnets and Peridots are found is known as Kimberlite. It is named after Kimberley in South Africa where in the late 1800’s the mineral was first identified shortly after an 83ct Diamond was found within it.
A Kimberlite Pipe refers to an upside-down, carrot-shaped crack or dyke made of Kimberlite, where magma once raced to the surface from deep within the earth’s crust. Whenever a new Kimberlite pipe is discovered, Diamond explorers are sure to follow. Plus, as these structures are derived from possibly 80-90 miles from within the Earth’s crust, they provide us with valuable information about the inner Earth, so you might find the odd scientists alongside the gem hunters.
