Definitions of DIAMONDIFEROUS
Sort: Oldest first
Same as DIAMANTIFEROUS. "One of the latest creations of pretentious sciolism which I have noticed is diamondiferous, a term applied to certain tracts of country in South Africa. Adamantiferous, etymologically correct, would never answer; but all except pedants or affectationists would be satisfied with diamond-producing."-Fitzedward Hall.
