The 'peace diamond' of Sierra Leone

The government of Sierra Leone has auctioned a 709 carat rough diamond, named the 'peace diamond', which will benefit its people.

Half of the proceeds from the sale of the diamond will go directly towards bringing clean water, electricity, schools, medical facilities, bridges and roads to the community where the stone was discovered.
