    More than a thousand fortune seekers have flocked to a small village in South Africa’s province of Kwa Zulu Natal to search for diamonds.

    The rush comes after a herder discovered what he believes to be a quartz crystal. The government has sent mining experts to assess the findings.

    DW correspondent Adrian Kriesch went to KwaHlathi, about 250km from Durban, to do some digging.
