Beautifull Diamond from Sedibeng Diamond Mine AM, its sad to think that its from South Africa yet South African law makes it illegal for me as a South African resident to own such a specimen from my own country unless I get a special permit that is not easily obtained, yet it is perfectly legal in your collection regardless of permit.

Thanks Reinhardt. I am sorry to hear that the laws in your country make ownership of diamond specimens so difficult.

Interesting enough raw precious metals, local fossils and all meteorites that land in the borders of South Africa are all illegal to own since they are considered government property. Our strange little country.
