Description:

There is no other commodity with such an irresistible fascination as diamonds. People will risk all for them. They will betray, cheat, lie, deceive and murder. They will forfeit honour, friendship and loyalty. They will suffer privations and danger.

For diamonds make dreams a reality. They bring prestige and power. They open doors to presidents and kings. They magically transfer poor men into millionaires. That is what happened to August Stauch.

This is the true story of a lonely railway employee at one of the most desolate and godforsaken outposts on earth, who stumbled across diamonds in the desert which became the richest source of these gems in the world. It is a human and poignant story that has never been fully told.

Extract:

Stauch, Scheibe and a few labourers set off for that area, well-equipped with mules, wagons and water. They made two vain attempts to cross a formidable sand-dune barrier. The monstrous difficulties, combined with a shortage of water, caused the workers to protest and object to continuing the expedition.

They were finally persuaded to make one more effort and this time they succeeded. Utterly exhausted they reached a valley in the Pomona area which Stauch named Idatal, Ida’s Valley, in honour of his wife. They set up camp hoping that their tents would provide some protection against the blistering sand storms and cold, wet, all-enveloping fog. After a rest they sent the mules and wagons back to Kolmanskop.

Scheibe immediately started exploring the desert for diamonds, while Stauch went off to plot their exact position on the coast. He returned in the late afternoon without having found anything of interest and encountered a Herero labourer, Jakob, who had gone in search of driftwood for the camp fire. He was clutching an armful of wood. Stauch said to him jokingly, “Jakob, don’t look for wood. Look for diamonds.” Jakob promptly dropped the wood and knelt on the desert sand. He was barely on his knees when he exclaimed excitedly: “Mister! Ai je titatita. Ai je titatita!”

Stauch saw in amazement that Jakob’s hands were full of diamonds. Not knowing where to put them, Jakob began stuffing them into his mouth to gather more handfuls. Stauch dismounted and knelt beside Jakob. He called out to Prof. Scheibe who ran up to them and gasped in astonishment at the incredible picture. Stauch and Jakob were busy picking up diamonds that lay in such profusion in the sand that Scheibe later described them as lying “like plums under a plum tree”.

Scheibe kept on crying, “Ein Märchen! Ein Märchen!” (A fairy-tale! A fairytale!) over and over. So this valley came to be known as Märchental (Fairy-tale Valley) - which indeed it was. Then night fell like a curtain dropping at the dramatic climax to a play. The men were reluctantly forced to depart from the fabulous treasures. After dinner they sat chatting, much too excited to sleep, and waited for the customary sand storm and the sea mist to envelop them.

It was Silvesternacht, a New Year’s eve they were to remember all their lives. Nature itself seemed to be bewitched. There was no storm and no fog. A strange, unearthly spell fell over the enchanted valley. The moon rose like a genie. The two men could not resist the temptation to return to the mystic valley, half expecting that it might all have been a fantasy, a desert mirage.

But there the diamonds lay, glittering in the pale moonlight like a scene from the Arabian Nights. It was a vision such as has never been seen before or since. This valley proved to have the richest deposit of diamonds ever known. At first it was not even necessary to use any mining methods. The diamonds were simply picked up by hand.

In the first twenty months one million carats of diamonds were mined. Pomona was later described as a place “as thickly studded with lustrous gems as the showcases of a jeweller’s window”. Stauch and Scheibe pegged some ten claims in the best areas. One, called the Hexenkessel (witches’ cauldron), was also exceptionally rich in diamonds, while another valley was named after Scheibe - Scheibe-Tal. But it was at Idatal that the largest diamonds were found, stones of up to 43 and 52 carats.

When reports of the fabulous discovery at Pomona reached Lüderitzbucht, prospectors tore off like hunters on the trail of a fox. They travelled day and night to the fields, with wagons, horses, provisions, claim boards and poles. Some took camels which they loaded with barrels of water and equipment. One prospector returned after only a few days with a bag overflowing with diamonds.

Trading on the Lüderitzbucht Stock Exchange was hectic: 30 000 marks changed hands for shares without any proof of diamond occurrences. Fortunes were made and lost in the days that followed. Then came the devastating news. Stauch and Scheibe had pegged their claims in all innocence in what they believed was part of “Lüderitzland”. They soon discovered that the matter was far from being so simple. The valleys concerned all lay in the Pomona mainland concession that had been granted to De Pass & Co. This gave rise to a complicated situation involving various claimants.

The facts were that in 1863 Captain Sinclair, representing De Pass, Spence and Co., had signed an agreement with the Bethanien Hottentot chief, David Christian, which granted the firm rights to the coastal strip of land from Angra Pequena to Baker’s Cove.

While mining guano on Pomona Island the interesting “mineralisation” on the adjacent mainland was observed and a company formed by De Pass in Cape Town to exploit it. Then along came Herr Lüderitz, raising the German flag at Angra Pequena. When Daniel de Pass read of this, he immediately protested to the British government.

The British in turn protested to the German government and “a flurry of correspondence and protest notes followed between London and Berlin, London and the Cape”, as recounted by John Phillips, the great-great-grandson of Daniel de Pass. As a result two Anglo-German commissions of enquiry were appointed to investigate the claims.

The first one sat at the Cape in 1885 and gathered evidence all along the South West African coast. (It incidentally gives a fascinating insight into the early commercial history of South West Africa.) The following year a second Anglo-German commission sat in Berlin. A compromise was reached in which Lüderitz obtained the coastal strip, excluding the Pomona mining area.

According to the “Angra Pequena Settlement”, De Pass, Spence and Co. were awarded “for themselves and their assigns a full title in perpetuity to the Pomona mine with two English miles of land around the mine on every side.“ This was intended as a consolation prize for De Pass. But the irony was that it proved to be the most valuable part of the whole area and the real prize. For it was there that Stauch and Scheibe made their fabulous discovery. […]
