It's Raining Diamonds on Saturn and Jupiter | diamonds and gemstones | Scoop.it

We're a little late to the party on this one, but it's just too fascinating to pass up. A team of planetary scientists recently claimed that the mix of methane, carbon and lightning in Saturn's atmosphere is causing diamonds to be forged in the planet's atmosphere. Like, a lot of diamonds.

Mugabe party official probed over $6 mln diamond bribe

Mugabe party official probed over $6 mln diamond bribe | diamonds and gemstones | Scoop.it

Zimbabwean police announced a probe Friday into a top member of President Robert Mugabe's party on suspicion of soliciting a $6-million bribe from a Ghanaian investor in a diamond-mining deal.

"The case of corruption allegations against Mr Godwills Masimirembwa is receiving our attention and preliminary investigations are going on," police spokeswoman Charity Charamba said in a statement.

Masimirembwa, a former board chairman for the state-owned diamond firm Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC), is said to have demanded a bribe of $6 million (4.4 million euros) from Gye Nyame Resources.

The Ghanaian company had entered into a joint venture with ZMDC with a 30 percent stake.

When the west African firm wanted to bring its equipment into Zimbabwe, Masimirembwa allegedly claimed that it had violated some unspecified laws and warned that its personnel would be arrested if they set foot in the country.
