What Are Natural Diamonds?
Diamonds belong to the family minerals, well known as the hardest material found on the earth naturally. The diamonds are the only stones that are made of a single element, which is carbon. Diamonds were formed 150km – 200km deep below the earth’s crust in the melted rock of the mantle. The process started with Carbon molecules being compressed under high pressure of 45 to 60 kilo bar while undergoing intense heat of 900 degrees to 1300 degrees. These are formed in the earth’s crust under high circumstances of temperature and pressure. Its distinctive chemical composition and configuration created it a truly unusual gemstone.
What Are Fancy Colored Diamonds?
Colored diamonds are diamonds that have a noticeable body color when viewed in a face-up position. Brown and yellow are the most common colors in natural coloured diamonds. Diamonds with natural pink, blue, orange, green, red, and violet body colors are extremely rare. Out of 100,000 diamonds, only a few will have one of the extremely rare colors. The color can have any intensity between "very light" and "vivid". To be considered a "colored diamond" the color must be noticeable when the diamond is in the face-up position. Black, gray, and white diamonds are also possible. The price of a colored diamond depends on more than its hue. Color saturation and the uniformity of color across the face of the gem are also important. Those with a pure hue are generally more desirable than those with modifying colors.
