Is Your Rock a Conflict Diamond?

rmmojado's picture
Conflict diamonds, also known as blood diamonds, are diamonds used to fund war related conflict in Central and Western Africa. Rebel, military, and terrorist groups in many parts of Africa run a brutal diamond industry which provides them with the funds necessary to purchase weapons and continue their reign of terror. Before you buy that diamond engagement ring, ask yourself one simple question: "When I hold this ring, do I have blood on my hands?"
