    BOOMSHAKALAKA: African Miner Finds 1.1 kg Emerald!

    Is it weird to be eroused by a gemstone? If its wrong, I don't wanna be right baby!

    It’s refreshing to read factual stories about actual treasure being found vs. all of the make believe, “xxxxxx Treasure has been found!” stories we often see...

    Thanks for posting!

    Love to know was that stone would sell for. Make it into the most obnoxious ring ever. Keep it raw and slap a band on it haha

    Well there is a familiar name that is all too associated with child and slave labour.

    The fruits of child labour.

    Wonder what adult miner with rights they will pay off to claim he was involved with the find. Bet he is heavy, in a silk shirt and soft hands. LOL

    Heck of a find though.

    hmmm, here is the Bloomberg headline.....The world’s biggest emerald miner has found a gem that weighs more than 1.1 kilograms at its mine in Zambia.

    now Bloomberg is not a small mom and pop publisher. But at least mom and pop know how to write a lead sentence correctly. What did this writer mean? But what he said was the worlds biggest emerald miner. oh, what? the the tallest, fattests well how tall or big was he? Problem is these youngsters go to college to learn journalism and the "professors" spend all their class time teaching them how to be good socialists and no time on how to actually write correctly and factually. And guess what, his or her editor is just as ignorant about writing because they did not catch the error, but I am sure they are all oh so politically correct.
