The Sefadu
The Sefadu is an uncut diamond weighing 620 carats which easily makes it one of the worlds’ largest diamonds. It's owned by Lazare Kaplan, and American diamond company, but its current place is unknown. It is one of the largest rough stone ever found, and the only one of the top stones not to have been cut.

Franz Liszt: the first pop phenomenon
In many ways Franz Liszt was the JustinBieber of his day. It’s been said that Liszt generated such excitement that women would literally attack him: tear bits of his clothing, fight over broken piano strings and locks of his shoulder-length hair. Born in Hungary in 1811, Liszt stood over six feet tall and had flashing brown eyes.

The Great Silver Mystery...REVEALED! 
Let me start off by saying that what I am going to postulate should not in any way be considered fact...because I am not in possession of proof. I am merely postulating on where all the mystery silver comes from to be sold on the physical silver market. Since the early 2000's almost every serious silver analyst has been pounding the table that there is no above ground silver available and it is the "buy of a lifetime".

The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

What’s your weight worth in silver? 
Sometimes known as ‘poor man’s gold’, silver nevertheless has an equally fascinating history. Like its illustrious partner, silver has been associated with wealth and power for thousands of years. Its special properties also made it ideal for coins – hence its use in the oldest mass produced form of coinage.

The Crash of the Bank of the United States 
By the fourth quarter of 1930 the trouble with the Bank of United States gave occasion to grave concern. The Bank of United States was a bank which ought never to have existed, and which certainly ought never to have had the name it had. One leading banker of New York went personally to Albany to protest against the giving of such a name to that bank or to any other bank, and was told that there was a political debt to pay.

July 22, 1944 : Bretton Woods and the New Gold Exchange Standard (the U.S.) 1945-1968
The new international monetary order was conceived and then driven through by the United States at an international monetary conference at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, in mid-1944, and ratified by the Congress in July, 1945. While the Bretton Woods system worked far better than the disaster of the 1930's, it worked only as another inflationary recrudescence of the gold-exchange standard of the 1920s and--like the 1920s--the system lived only on borrowed time.

Commodity Prices in US Dollars 1831-1881, Gold @US$20.67 
All prices for all commodities were remarkably stable during this period in which gold was fixed at US$20.67 per ounce by the US Treasury from the time of our country's founding. Gold remained at that price until Congress surrendered its authority to the Federal Reserve in 1913. So, an ounce of gold would have exchanged for 20 silver dollars. This means of commerce would have been accurately termed a "Gold Coin Exchange Standard", and NOT a "gold standard", as the money was in the hands of the p

Ending the Monetary Fiasco – Returning to Sound Money 
Money plays a key role in facilitating and intensifying the process of civilization. However, this holds true only for free-market money, while with government-controlled fiat money, the opposing tendency comes into operation, namely the process of decivilization.

The Federal Reserve As An Engine Of Deflation (sic!) 
Although the Fed’s open market purchases of securities (always net) affect only the short end of the yield curve directly, through the transmission of risk-free bond speculation they will affect the rest of the yield curve indirectly. Thus the entire spectrum of interest rates will keep falling in consequence of the Fed’s open market purchases of Treasury bills (or equivalent). This is a powerful if unrecognized force in the economy causing a chain-reaction as follows:
