This geology, natural science and family adventure book is now available. The 5.5 inch by 8.5 inch volume includes over fifty full-color photographs, as well as black and white illustrations, historic photos and helpful maps of the world’s only diamond mine that is open to the general public for individual prospecting. Visitors and tourists digging in the volcanic kimberlite/lamporite soil find an average of two authenticated and certified diamonds per day. Come, see if a place where diamonds are lying around on the ground just waiting for the sharp-eyed visitor to pick them up and take them home is a place you’d like to visit. This mine is a one-of-a-kind adventure that is just waiting for you. This sixty-six-page book is printed on 100 lb acid-free glossy paper and includes sample “car games” with which to entertain and educate the children during the trip to and from the diamond field. These games will help them understand the geology of the world’s most sought-after gemstones. Diamonds Are Waiting For You retails for $15.95.
