Top best answers to the question «Where can i find diamonds in nature»

There are three methods of diamond searching. Surface searching consists of walking up and down the rows of dirt looking for diamonds lying on top of the ground. This is the most productive method following a hard rain. Rain washes the soil away, leaving diamonds and other rocks and minerals exposed on the surface.

Most are found in kimberlites, which are pipe-like formations created as a result of volcanic and tectonic activity. The second geological source for diamonds is placer deposits. The diamonds are easily weathered out of their kimberlite host rock and are washed away by streams and rivers.
