Namibia 2008 Centenary of the Discovery of Diamonds in Namibia - Odd shaped MS with diamond shaped stamps 

Issue date 15 April 2008 

Namibia issued a beautiful Diamond shaped miniature  sheet with four stamps on Diamonds to commemorate Centenary of  Discovery of Diamonds in Namibia (1908- 2008). 

The Fluvial diamonds were washed down the Orange river and deposited along Namibian coast  millions of years ago. 

The four stamps depict the following
N$ 2.00 – Land Mining
N$ 2.00 – Marine Mining
N$ 2.00 – Uncut Diamonds
N$ 2.00 – Diamond Jewellery 

The miniature sheet also depicts the Bogenfeld Arch which is a rock formation on  the atlantic coast line of the Namib desert. It is situated about 100 kilometres in the south of Lüderitz and is a natural sea-arch formed by the action of waves.
