Expert Answer:

This refers to Helen's visit to Cape of Good Hope exhibit at the World's Fair. where she learnt about the processes of mining diamonds. There when she searched in the washings for a diamond, she found a real diamond, which the people over there with her said was the only true diamond ever found in the United States.
