Usually when a man drops down on one knee, you’re not going to be thinking “wow, that transparent crystal of tetrahedrally bonded carbon atoms that was pushed to the Earth’s surface by deep volcanic eruptions is probably extremely resistant to scratching and exhibits such an intense lustre”. See the other side of the beauty of a diamond with today’s deal a tour of the Cullinan Diamond Mine, a restaurant lunch and a shebeen and cultural tour of Refilwe Village Township for R280. Your starryeyed adventure begins with a shimmering tour of the stillworking Cullinan Diamond Mine, home of the world’s largest diamond. The mine has been operating for over a century and boasts a gigantic hole about as big as 52 soccer fields. If you tried to, you’d probably be able to host a worldclass soccer tournament inside it in one day. Soccer fields aside, the mine holds a wise old master diamond grader who will tell you all about the four c’s of diamonds – cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. If all the talk about carats has sent you into daydreams of lazily lounging about on a vegetable platter, fear not, food will indeed be in store. After the visit to the mine, continue your tour and indulge in a hearty restaurant meal of hunger pleasing proportions. As if this is already not enough, Fundani’s wellinformed and goodhumoured guides will then whisk you off on a shebeen and cultural tour of the home of the mining men behind the scenes. Refilwe Village Township is home to 90% of the Cullinan Diamond Mine miners and the perfect place to end off your tour with a lekker jol. Making use of the wealth of knowledge you’ve just gained you can also engage in intelligent conversation about the look and lustre of that transparent crystal that your best friend’s boyfriend’s brother’s uncle gave his fiancé two weeks ago. Diamond Fact In certain parts of Hawaii, people use diamonds as buttons. An official warning was released informing residents that it was not safe to do this. The warning was ignored and as a result, many vagrants who were wellknown in Hawaii now live in Milan.
