Russia's Giant Diamond Mine Could Collapse the Global Diamond Market

Russia has been the world’s largest diamond producer for the past 3 years. Its diamond mines in Yakutia produce massive profits in a tightly controlled market. However it has just been released that the Russians have been sitting on a monolithic mine for 40 years. In the 1970s they discovered a diamond field beneath a meteorite crater which contains trillions of carats, and could supply the world with diamonds for 3,000 years.

They didn’t release this information earlier in order to keep the diamond market under control, and the prices high.

Nikolai Pokhilenko, the director of the Novosibirsk Institute of Geology and Mineralogy, said that “the resources of super-hard diamonds contained in rocks of the Popigai crypto-explosion structure, are by a factor of ten bigger than the world's all known reserves. We are speaking about trillions of carats. By comparison, present-day known reserves in Yakutia are estimated at one billion carats.”

    These are industrial diamonds. They might threaten synthetic diamonds (although it means selling the diamonds at a level that can compete with synthetics and at a rate that is profitable, although this may prove difficult due to the costs involved in the mining extraction process), but they aren't going to threaten the diamond trade that is sold to consumers. Learn before you make an article.

    I think Siberia will provide the world with a lot more 'surprises' of this kind in years to come. Youi can fit 3 USAs into Siberia and the RFE with room to spare. It may well become warmer and more habitable with climate change (maybe more like Canada). With improvements in technology (including dealing with billions of mosquitos!) it could become the richest resource base on Earth. And that wealth might turn our concepts of free market economics on its head...
