A Journey to the Heart of An ObsessionBook - 2001
Hart tells the story of the diamond industry like a good whodunit. The intention is both to inform and to entertain, and the commodity ensures a history rife with drama. Readers learn all aspects of the trade, the geology of the stones, the mining systems employed, the history of De Beers, and the new competition De Beers faces from the diamond pipes of the Northwest Territories and the Arctic.
