6/15/06: The Heartless Stone

Journalist Tom Zoellner

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Journalist Tom Zoellner knows all too well the emotional meaning diamonds can carry with them. When his fiancee returned the only diamond he had ever bought, Zoellner visited 6 continents and 14 nations in search of answers. The result is The Heartless Stone, an investigation of the diamond industry from mine to finger. Zoellner will be in Salt Lake tomorrow, and today he joins Doug to talk about the machine that used a pretty hunk of carbon to change cultures and societies around the world.
