These are some diamonds I recovered a few years ago.
Alluvial diamonds are probably the most elusive mineral to search for.
With their specific gravity of 3.5 your recovery system has to be dialed in to exact specifications.
We dredged these diamonds with a 10" suction dredge and used a gravel pump to send the screened gravels to a jig recovery system.
Every time you pick a diamond out of your jig or see it on your Suruca's, You are always overwhelmed with the feeling of...... I really have found some of nature's treasures. The feeling of accomplishment always seem to come with diamond mining, when you find these elusive beauties.
Diamonds are fascinating!!!
