    The history of diamonds is fascinating.

    I liked it a lot, but I thought they could talk more about Brazil's diamonds. One of the most beautiful collections in the world is in Portugal. From the second decade of the 18th century until the start of mining in South Africa, around 1870, Minas Gerais was the largest diamond producer in the world and I believe most of it was cut in Amsterdam. Brazil still produced in the twentieth century and continues to produce with new growth prospects in the sector in Bahia, Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais. Recently in Coromandel they found a 92 ct diamond. Unfortunately there was no time to go to Belgium (Antwerp)

    A small but fine museum with great exhibits. The museum is located in the immediate vicinity of the Rijksmuseum and Moco. In addition to this, you can also buy a diamond (ring or chain) directly.
