Unidentified stones spark diamond rush in South Africa

Thousands of treasure seekers have flocked to KwaHlathi village in South Africa, believing the area could contain diamonds.

It comes after a man dug up a crystal-like stone in an open field and put out word of the discovery.

The stones haven’t been analysed by geological experts yet, and authorities have asked people on-site to leave so that a proper investigation can be carried out.

The provincial government also shared a video of the area on Twitter, expressing concern over what it has called a “diamond rush.”

They tweeted that they had “noted with concern, the reports of illegal mining activity taking place at KwaHlathi outside Ladysmith.”
