Kolmanskop, Namibia - The discovery of diamonds in the early 20th century sparked a mining rush, and German prospectors established a settlement here to mine the gems. The town was abandoned in 1954 after the supply began to dwindle and was finally exhausted. The desert winds swept in and blanketed the town in sand, making it one with the desert. Now the town can be explored on special tours, but nearly every building is covered in knee deep sand.
