Rocher du Diamand (Fotografie: Claude Ries)
Der „Rocher du Diamant“ (Diamantfelsen) liegt vor der Küste von Martinique. Die Vulkaninsel verdankt ihren Namen ihrer abgeschrägten Form und den glitzernden Reflektionen auf ihrer Oberfläche. Obwohl unbewohnt, wurde sie 1803–4 während der Napoleonischen Kriege von der Britischen Armee besetzt, die sie zur „H.M.S. Diamond Rock“ taufte – einem bewegungslosen Schiff aus Stein.
