Cape Town Diamond MuseumThis small museum attached to the Shimansky boutique tells the fascinating history of the little stones that played such a big role in South Africa's history. The 45-minute tour covers a time line of 3 billion years, mostly focusing on how the local industry developed in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and ending in a showroom where polishers are busy "brillianteering" stones that are available for purchase.
