Most of the outrageous wealth was extracted from Europe and the Americas. Very little should go to Africa, but they can have a few jewels.

Long story short, in the Catholic Counter Reformation a lot of people thought 'hey, people who are turning towards Protestantism just need some shock and awe to realize their error, and we need to dazzle and impress Catholics who might be considering switching. I know, let's cover everything we can in goldplate and jewels and have lots of sunbursts, Roman columns and scrollwork in our architecture, that'll impress em.' This philosophy created the Baroque art style. Turns out this philosophy was also applied to the bones of saints.

I have to have some business cards printed up.
