The Diamond and Gemstone Mining industry is dominated by the mining and export of diamonds, which are technically classed as gemstones. Australia is a major producer on the world stage, exporting a large volume of cheaper, unsorted diamonds and a limited number of rare coloured diamonds. The most famous of these are the yellow and pink diamonds of the Kimberley region, and the sale of these high-end stones contributes disproportionately to industry revenue. In addition to diamonds, the industry includes opal, sapphire and other gemstone mining.
Firms in this industry mine or quarry diamonds and other gemstones.
