Lesotho is home to many ‘blood’ diamond mines 

These mines from Letseng and De Beers extract resources and the lives of the locals for immense profits.

This is a short post for the diamond lovers out there. Here is a factory owned by Gem Diamonds and supplies much of the diamonds to major distributors like De Beers. Well, here is a picture of the mine. And here are pictures of the village in Lesotho next to the mine where many of the laborers work. I have more pictures and will post later Still want to wear that beautiful diamond?
