The Diamond Jubilee Mineral Development Company of Ontario, Canada Ltd.
Share warrant to bearer of 5 shares of 1 $ each, no. 5290; Toronto, febr. 1898, printed by Alexander & Co., Ltd., Toronto; text in black and white, both in English and French, with large gold seal and 2 small pictures of beavers; a beauty to frame ! measuring ca. 21 x 35 cm (9 x 14 inch); couponsheet attached as originally issued, one coupon cut for dividend; condition EF = extremely fine, unfolded, almost as new; price € 95.

This share warrant is depicted on the cover of the German share collector's magazine "der Aktiensammler" no 6, 2008. Page 10 and 11 are an article "Fascination Diamanten: Edelsteine im Spiegel Historischer Wertpapiere" (Engl.: Diamond fascination: gems mirrorred by historic stocks). However, a diamond share collector pointed out to me that this company is probably an ordinary mining company, not involved in diamonds. We can see a correct definition in WIKIPEDIA : A Diamond Jubilee is a celebration held to mark a 60th anniversary in the case of a person (e.g. wedding anniversary, length of time a monarch has reigned as King or Queen, etc.) or a 75th anniversary in the case of an event (e.g. the founding of a university), such as in the case of the University of Nottingham'sJubilee Campus

In this context , the  term of mineral is used frequently  for rocks, earths  and metallic ores and very rarely  for a gemmy material.
