Cape Town Diamond Museum
South Africa and diamonds go hand-in-hand – the great mines of Kimberley have made some South African families very rich. This Cape Town museum in the heart of the touristy Waterfront tells the story of the how, who, when and where. There are full size replicas of some of the world’s most famous diamonds on display so magpie visitors can get a feel for the size and beauty of stones they have only heard of. There are displays to explain the formation of diamonds and then the processes by which they are polished and cut to become sought after world over.
