Diamonds in the Chapada Diamantina – Bahia, Brazil

Just before starting a new trip to Brazil (into manganese mineral deposits in Goiás and Minas Gerais), this is a new photogallery for a 2004 road trip aimed at learning about the Bahia diamond deposits (geology, formation, history, social and natural settings). Of course, it was just the perfect pretext for four old friends getting into another Brazilian road trip. It took us from Diamantina (Minas Gerais) to Andaraí and Lencóis (Bahia).
I just hope the new trip’s photos won’t take 10 years to be published…
