If you stumbled across this... what would you think?.
Doesn't look like much does it?
Yet this odd looking piece of rock is worth millions
It's a diamond , recently unearthed in a country well known for diamonds
Just goes to show , beauty more often than not, resides below the surface
Pastor Emmanuel Momoh is reported to have unearthed a 706 carat diamond [click]
This diamond worth over £50 million has reportedly been handed over to the President.
Its been stated that the governments plans are to auction it... and the money raised will be used to benefit the communities.
As the weeks go on the people will forget this amazing discovery, and their lives will continue as usual.
Corruption plagues countries like Sierra Leone, so it will be amazing if the communities will see any benefit.
But imagine... if you lived in a country where trust in government and officials was in short supply, and you found such a gem... who would you hand it to?
Who would you trust with it?
Perhaps you would feel inclined to simply put it back
