Book Description
When he proposed to his girlfriend, Tom Zoellner gave what is expected of every American man - a diamond engagement ring. But when the relationship broke apart, he was left with a used diamond that began to haunt him. His obsession carried him around the globe: from the " blood diamond" rings of Africa; to the sweltering polishing factories of India; to mines above the Arctic Circle; to illegal diggings in Brazil; to the London headquaters of De Beers, the secretive global carved the phrase " A diamond is forever" on the psyche. An adventure story in the tradition of Susan Orlean`s The Orchid Thief, The Heartless Stone is a voyage into the cold heart of the world`s most unyielding gem.
