How to cut a diamond in your backyard
You can cut a small diamond into your backyard for your pets or as a gift for someone special.
The Australian Government is urging people to make a “blessed” diamond cut, as it wants to promote the value of the gem.
It says cutting a diamond requires “care and attention to detail” and is an “extraordinary process” which requires “precision and skill”.
“We believe that with the right care and attention, you can create an unparalleled quality piece of jewellery for yourself or someone special,” the Government said in a statement.
It added that cutting diamonds in your own backyard “will offer the opportunity to display your love for nature and wildlife, and to honour your heritage”.
The Australian government has urged people to cut diamonds in their backyard to celebrate a species that is endangered and “unusual” and “unique”.
The announcement comes after Australia’s Department of Environment, Water and Planning announced a $2.5 million grant for “community engagement” to help promote diamond conservation.
A$1 million grant will support community engagement in mining, quarrying and other industries, and a $500,000 grant will “promote the diamond industry in Australia”.
The Federal Government is also spending $1 million to help communities protect the country’s rare earth minerals.
It said the Government was “working closely with the private sector to promote responsible, sustainable and sustainable mining practices”.
The department’s diamond survey aims to find out what people are doing to protect the environment, protect their communities and support the diamond sector.
The report said “a significant number of people in Australia are doing some or all of the above”.
It said there was “strong evidence that people who cut diamonds are less likely to consume, recycle and dispose of their diamonds”.
But the report said there were also strong links between diamond consumption and environmental degradation, and that cutting a stone meant people were “socially isolated and disconnected from their community”.
“In short, diamond cutting is a form of socially harmful behaviour, but it also has some important environmental benefits,” the report states.
“If done properly, cutting a beautiful piece of diamond will offer a chance to reflect on how you view the world and how you want to live your life, and how that contributes to the well-being of your communities and the environment.”
