    How do you find hidden diamonds?

    Everyone tells me it is not possible.
    It ought to be because I love diamonds.
    What about some type of infrared camera?

    Re: How do you find hidden diamonds?

    IF they are Lying on top of the Ground, infrared May work. ALTHO "infrared" may NOT be the Right light source, Hopefully someone here can Explain Better

    ? If they are Hidden, ONLY Research will work, unless they are in a Metal box

    that you can detect.

    What ever you do, DON'T FALL for a "Diamond Detector"

    why dont you teach the dog to find diamonds

    Good site explaining finding diamonds:

    http://brysonburke.com/ex_overview_and_index.html

    Diamonds may be found in alluvial (material deposited by running water) formations and in volcanic pipes, filled with blue ground or kimberlite, an igneous rock consisting largely of serpentine. At the surface the blue ground is weathered to a clay called yellow ground.

    Diamantiferous (or diamondiferous), or diamond-yielding, earth is mined both by the open-pit method and by underground mining.

    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    That's very interesting,
    I've heard that diamond isn't all that rare

    Diamonds aren't actually rare.

    IF you try to buy a 20 Point Diamond it will Cost you a Mint.
    Around here If you Try to sell a 20 Point Diamond, they pay 10 cents a point.

    Re: How do you find hidden diamonds?

    I'm not up on pricing but I actually know diamond fairly well(cut consumer stones)
    What I like about diamond is that the per measure price (my own term ) is higher for larger stones
    I don't think gold works that way.

    Also, diamond looks good to me, I guess CZ looks as good and you see more dispersion - I love things that shine for some reason

    Cut diamond is a great way to hide money let me tell you I could hide $5M and you would not ever find it!
    Funny what Debeers got away with, makes me think that if I discovered a big ?deposit? of rough, might be more dough in it selling to D than if I sold the diamond!

    Yea , ain't that the truth

    If you try to start a Diamond Buisness, They would Under cut you so far, you would be
    begging them to take them off your hands.
    after putting you out of buisness, they would raise their price again, till someone else
    tries to get into the buisness.

    there was a show on TV years ago on De Beers. It showed lines of very young kids at tables,
    cutting diamonds for a couple cents each.

    Gypsyheart
    You have answered the question why I am still single after all these years? I do not know what Sorrels and Carhartts are.

    However, getting back on track on IDing diamonds. Fluorescence would be one method to use. Use a portable UV light at night.? Not all diamonds fluoresce and I believe the most intense would be a blue color. You would also need to learn that many materials, rocks, minerals fluoresce. For example calcite, dolomite commonly fluoresce yellow.

    This would not work on hidden diamonds but I also thought about using a portable UV light at night in parking lots, ect looking fo stones knocked out of settings. (Hi Officer- What am I dong here?)

    I remember many years ago some folks obtained some old carpet from an old movie threater just for the purpose of looking for lost diamonds. They simply washed the old carpet and went thru the residue looking for loose diamonds.

    Jeff
    Certainly the field or woods where that airliner went down with all those diamonds would be place to search with a UV light after a rainstorm.

    bakergeol, I can tell you must live where it's warm most of the year and in a big city to boot. I wear Sorrels and Carhartts in the winters.

    I like finding my diamonds the easy way with a metal detector and the stone is mounted on a ring. Location is everything. If you don't hunt where the diamond wearing people gather, you'll mainly collect CZ's and semi precious stones, or beer pull tabs.

    Re: How do you find hidden diamonds?

    So you are interested in Diamonds. How far are you willing to go to recovery them.
    I went to Sierra Leone many years ago and located what would have been the worlds largest diamond deposit but the problem was I was there when the DIAMOND WAR started.
    What you have to do is a ton of research and listen to what is being said but mainly what is NOT being said. There is an area along the coastline south of Freetown and south of Sherbro Island that is covered with diamonds BUT one must be very very carefull with who you deal with. 12 year old kids carry AK-47s.
