Diamond is said to be a girl’s best friend but it is not only girls who love diamonds. These beautiful gems are loved by most people in the world and also by those countries which produce them. Diamonds are excavated from diamond mines which are present only in a few places or countries. Infact not all diamond mines produce large quantities of this gem. But those which do are considered richer than the others.
The mines are rated for richness in terms of the production in carats of diamonds per year. On the basis of this parameter, some of the richest diamond mines in the world have been listed down and are as follows:
