Zimbabwe has been told to clean its diamonds or totally lose its diamond market share to synthetic diamonds if environmental and human rights issues are not addressed, the Daily News reports.

America banned Zimbabwe diamonds on American markets this year due to alleged unethical practices at diamond mines.
