Argyle produce over 90% of the worlds supply of pink diamonds, and this rare pink gem equates to just 1% of the Argyle mine’s total diamond production. Amazingly, a whole year’s worth could fit into the palm of your hand.
The Argyle Mine’s closure will be a major milestone and its significance has not been lost on the diamond community or savvy investors with a preference for hard assets. Pink diamonds have shown very good stability and consistency of investment performance over the long term and are insulated from stock market volatility.
Chairman of the Diamond Guild of Australia Michael Neuman said there had been no other mine like Argyle discovered in human history.
“There hasn’t been a new viable diamond mine discovery in the last 20 – 30 years and the ones that are currently in production all over the world are likely to become economically unviable in the next 50 years” he said
“To my mind, that means it’s extremely unlikely that another regular source of pinks will ever be found, because the conditions required for the formation of pink diamonds in nature are so freakish” www.abc.net.au Jan 2020
“To own an Argyle Diamond is to own a piece of Australian history”
Argyle Pink Diamond exhibition continues at JahRoc Galleries until 30th April.
