Asked in Diamonds
Where do Americas diamonds come from?
All diamonds are formed deep within the earth's mantle, and are erupted to the earth's surface through volcanic pipes. One volcanic pipe in the United States has been popularized: Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. Diamonds are also mined in Canada -- North America, and in Brazil -- South America.

Asked in Diamonds
What kind of diamonds being produce by America?
In the Americas, Canada appears to be rich with the mineral diamond with several active mines; the United States is not so rich in this natural resource -- Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is the only active diamond area; and Mexico doesn't acknowledge any activity in diamonds. In South America, Brazil is known for diamonds, with the other countries not registering on the lists of diamond producers. Man-made diamonds are produced in the United States, principally for industrial purposes. In all diamond-rich deposits, about 80% of all diamonds mined are industrial diamonds, the remainder being all grades of gem-quality stones.
