Diamonds

Diamond- from Ancient Greek adamas (unbreakable). This word perfectly describes the physical properties of diamond, since it is at the top of the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.


Diamonds are classified according to the 4C system, which determines the value of a diamond:

  • cut 
  • clarity
  • colour
  • carat.

The better the diamond had been cut, the more reflection it will have. Once the light beam strikes the crystal, it reflects from the opposite facet and breaks into rainbow colours. Due to this property diamonds showcase an incredible luster.

 

Diamonds are graded by the clarity. Nearly all of them contain inclusions, however many of them are only visible using multiple magnification, which does not affect gemstones' beauty. Flawlessly clean diamonds are extremely rare and are much more expensive.

Some people mistakenly believe diamonds most commonly mined in nature are colourless. This is a fallacy, as normally diamonds have a yellowish tint. Absolutely colourless diamonds, known as "pure diamonds", are difficult to meet, as well as their price is much higher.

This rule cannot apply to the naturally coloured diamonds. These gemstones are very rare and are more expensive than colorless diamonds.


 

Carat – is gemstone's mass; 1 carat (1ct) is equal to 0.2 grams (200 milligrams). The term "carat" comes from Ancient Greece, where the seeds of Carob tree (cerátiοn) were used as a unit of weight.
