Weighted by Carat

American Blood Diamond is a conceptualization of a fictional American company within the extraction industry. Its’ business model is the wholesale and export of raw carat weight from parts of the country following periods of violence, unrest, riots or revolution. These recovered gemstones are fragments of shattered glass from retail, automotive or bottles.

One week after his arrest, Freddie Gray died on April 19, 2015 as a result of injuries sustained during his police transport. Although sporadic recovery opportunities occurred through May 3, these stones represent the peak recovery day on April 28 and are graded as very rare retail/storefront colorless (ultra low iron content).
