The world’s largest diamond-exploration vessel was launched off the coast of Namibia by De Beers.as it looks to maintain high production levels until 2035.

The 113-metre-long SS Nujoma was built at a cost of over $150 million and is expected to extract over a million carats of diamonds from the ocean floor. As diamond sales have been optimistic, this will be a welcome addition to today's mining operations.


Diamonds are also important to Namibia as they generate 20% of its foreign export earnings. 

There are a number of active diamond mining vessels sailing around.  They have the added value of being portable and have little impact on nature. This makes these diamonds both ethical and environmentally friendly.
