Resumo

Bahia’s black diamond (carbonado) production and trade is rarely mentioned in the academic literature though reports were made in popular magazines, in U.S and British consular reports and in trade journals. This diamond trade was mostly carried out by foreigners having few connections with the local Bahia elite and the small physical volume of diamonds made transportation easy (or invisible through smuggling). Carbonados began figuring importantly in Bahia’s exports after the invention of the Leschot diamond head drill in 1862.
