Can metal detectors find diamonds?Updated a year ago

Question: Can metal detectors find diamonds?


Answer: This leads to an important point: Metal Detectors will not detect non metal items such as gemstones, diamonds and pearls. What a metal detector can do is lead you to indicator minerals, which are used by prospectors. Prospectors follow the indicator trail back to gold or the volcanic pipe which may contain diamonds.
