Diamond Mining Made Easy

5 May 2015

The easy way to hunt for diamonds

New research has identified a plant that appears to only grow above diamond sites. A scientist has focused his efforts on investigating the Pandanus candelabrum and its locality to diamonds and the potential of diamond mining.

The prickly palm plant grows on top of kimberlite pipes which are columns of volcanic rock which span hundreds of meters and reach deep into the earth. These pipes of rock are the largest source for diamonds and where most diamond mining quarries are set up.

Due to the consistency of the plant growing on diamond sites, diamond hunters are using it as a tool for the exploration of new mining sites especially in the West African area and are revealing areas rich in precious gems and semi-precious gemstones. It is thought that the Pandanus candelabrum plant grows in the kimberlite soils due to the richness of magnesium, potassium and phosphorus.

The scientist, Stephen Haggerty, who has researched this phenomenon continues to focus his searches in the northwest of Liberia
