Diamond Fetches Record $30.6 Million At Hong Kong Auction

It is REALLY quite disgusting when you think about it. A small mineral which has almost no practical application for an everyday human-being requires more than 950 years of labor to obtain. This is based upon the median annual salary of an American full-time worker at approximately $32,000. ($30,600,000 divided by $32,000 = 956.25)
