RAPAPORT... The World Diamond Mark Foundation has built the foundations of the World Diamond Museum, a cloud-based exhibition that brings together an “unprecedented” collection of gems. 

The virtual museum – Facets of Mankind – stresses the “intrinsic connection between the diamond and human civilization,” the foundation said. 

The museum will display diamonds and diamond jewelry, including famous stones, and will include pieces that are as yet unknown to the public.

The creation of the museum will be charted in a filmed documentary that is scheduled to be broadcast worldwide on the National Geographic and Discovery television channels and will be offered to television networks in different countries.

“Facets of Mankind is to be a living documentary of the journey of diamonds and its relationship with the human race," said Alex Popov, chairman of the World Diamond Mark.
