In 2014, a tiger was bought for a record $1 billion.
But that was not the last big tiger auction.
In recent years, a lot has changed.
In January, the tiger auction house, TigerBid, was sold for $2 billion to a group led by billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
In June, the bidding for a $1.6 billion diamond auction took a dramatic turn when China’s Wang Jianlin bought the largest diamond ever to go for auction.
The Chinese government bought the rights to the diamond from the British auction house Christie’s in 2011 for $3.6 million.
A lot of money changed hands.
In the past decade, China has grown into a giant economy, and diamond mining has become a key source of revenue for the country.
In fact, in 2011, China accounted for 70 percent of the world’s diamonds, and China was expected to overtake the United States as the world leader in diamond mining by 2030.
But a number of factors have changed the face of diamond mining.
China’s diamond boom has created an incentive for producers to operate in the country’s poor, and most of the diamond mined in China today comes from mines owned by state-owned companies, including the state-run Guandong and Dongxing Group.
In many of these mines, workers are forced to work for as little as $1 per day.
Diamonds are also harder to mine in China, meaning more of them are produced.
As a result, demand for diamonds has skyrocketed.
Diamond mining in China has explodedIn 2012, China produced more than 1 billion tons of diamonds, a record high.
In 2014 alone, China’s economy expanded by 8 percent.
This meant that by 2030, China will produce about $8 trillion worth of diamonds.
Diamond mining in the world is also booming.
According to the United Nations Economic Commission for Asia and the Pacific, China is now the third largest producer of diamonds after India and the United Kingdom.
The diamond industry is becoming a multibillion dollar industryThe diamond business is also facing challenges.
Diamond mines have experienced high production costs and have been forced to scale back operations due to economic downturns and environmental regulations.
Many diamond mines in China have been closed in recent years due to environmental regulations, which are considered a form of forced labor.
Some of these workers were forced to cut down trees in order to extract diamonds.
These problems have led to an explosion in demand for diamond mining in Asia.
In 2017, demand in China reached $17 billion, the most recent year for which data is available.
In 2020, demand was $11.7 billion, according to Bloomberg data.
In the United Arab Emirates, demand hit $6.9 billion in the first quarter of 2019, while demand in India was $5.4 billion in 2018.
Diamond prices in China are rising.
In 2016, a $4.8 million diamond auction, held at the Sotheby’s in New York, was the largest in Chinese history.
In 2019, the price of a $2.2 million diamond in China was $25,000.
Diamond sales in China tripled in 2020, according, according the Bloomberg data, from $4 billion to $11 billion.
In 2017, China had a $15.3 billion diamond industry, according a study from Goldman Sachs, and a $13.7 trillion economy, according estimates from the International Monetary Fund.
China is currently the world market for diamonds, with an estimated value of $3 trillion.
China and the rest of Asia have experienced an economic boomDiamonds are the best form of currencyThe most valuable piece of diamond is not the one in the hand, but the diamond itself.
Diamond miners in China do not work in isolation.
Diamond processing plants, diamond bars, and diamonds are used to make a ton of jewelry.
Diamonds come in a wide range of shapes and sizes.
Diamond rings can be as long as a foot, and the diamonds are sometimes made from diamonds mined from the same area.
Diamond bars are also worth a lot of dollars.
Diamond jewelry can be very expensive in China.
The prices for diamonds have been steadily rising since 2010, but in 2020 they jumped $20.6 percent, according Bloomberg dataSource: Bloomberg data
