Rare Gem or Paperweight?

Diamond in the Rough
During a dig in Russia’s Udachnaya diamond mine, miners discovered a rock with two unusual characteristics – a red and green hue and, oh, 30,000 miniature diamonds.

Turning Rocks into Riches
One family of diggers turned their fun hobby into mind-blowing headlines. W. Renn Adams’s family took up the hobby of digging on the family farm to look for interesting, and hopefully valuable, gemstones.
