Diamonds and Colors
6 June 2016 / Blog
Diamonds come in nearly every color of the rainbow, from blue to yellow to pink to black to entirely see-through. What gives them this color? You may be surprised to know that all diamonds with color are actually the way they are because of chemical impurities. Whereas the purest diamonds, ones made of solely carbon, are entirely transparent, the color of a non-transparent diamond is determined by which elements have laced themselves between the diamond’s carbon atoms. However, while entirely clear diamonds are the technically considered the rarest and most pure, there is always a demand for diamonds of every hue, shade, shape and size. Like the old saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
