Although there are 18 atoms in the figure, each corner atom is shared by eight unit cells and each atom in the center of a face is shared by two, so there are a total of eight atoms per unit cell.

Diamonds can also form an ABAB Diamonds occur most often as euhedral or rounded octahedra and twinned octahedra known as macles. As diamond's crystal structure has a cubic arrangement of the atoms, they have many facets that belong to a cube , octahedron, rhombicosidodecahedron , tetrakis hexahedron or disdyakis dodecahedron.

The crystals can have rounded off and unexpressive edges and can be elongated. Diamonds especially those with rounded crystal faces are commonly found coated in nyf , an opaque gum-like skin.

Some diamonds have opaque fibers. They are referred to as opaque if the fibers grow from a clear substrate or fibrous if they occupy the entire crystal.

Their colors range from yellow to green or gray, sometimes with cloud-like white to gray impurities. Their most common shape is cuboidal, but they can also form octahedra, dodecahedra, macles or combined shapes.

The structure is the result of numerous impurities with sizes between 1 and 5 microns. These diamonds probably formed in kimberlite magma and sampled the volatiles.

Diamonds can also form polycrystalline aggregates. There have been attempts to classify them into groups with names such as boart , ballas , stewartite and framesite, but there is no widely accepted set of criteria.

There are many theories for its origin, including formation in a star, but no consensus. Diamond is the hardest known natural material on both the Vickers scale and the Mohs scale.

Diamond's great hardness relative to other materials has been known since antiquity, and is the source of its name.

The hardness of diamond contributes to its suitability as a gemstone. Because it can only be scratched by other diamonds, it maintains its polish extremely well.

Unlike many other gems, it is well-suited to daily wear because of its resistance to scratching—perhaps contributing to its popularity as the preferred gem in engagement or wedding rings , which are often worn every day.

These diamonds are generally small, perfect to semiperfect octahedra, and are used to polish other diamonds. Their hardness is associated with the crystal growth form, which is single-stage crystal growth.

Most other diamonds show more evidence of multiple growth stages, which produce inclusions, flaws, and defect planes in the crystal lattice, all of which affect their hardness.

It is possible to treat regular diamonds under a combination of high pressure and high temperature to produce diamonds that are harder than the diamonds used in hardness gauges.

Somewhat related to hardness is another mechanical property toughness , which is a material's ability to resist breakage from forceful impact.

The toughness of natural diamond has been measured as 7. As with any material, the macroscopic geometry of a diamond contributes to its resistance to breakage.

Diamond has a cleavage plane and is therefore more fragile in some orientations than others. Diamond cutters use this attribute to cleave some stones, prior to faceting.

Usually, attempting to deform bulk diamond crystal by tension or bending results in brittle fracture. Other specialized applications also exist or are being developed, including use as semiconductors : some blue diamonds are natural semiconductors, in contrast to most diamonds, which are excellent electrical insulators.

Boron substitutes for carbon atoms in the diamond lattice, donating a hole into the valence band. Substantial conductivity is commonly observed in nominally undoped diamond grown by chemical vapor deposition.

This conductivity is associated with hydrogen-related species adsorbed at the surface, and it can be removed by annealing or other surface treatments.

Diamonds are naturally lipophilic and hydrophobic , which means the diamonds' surface cannot be wet by water, but can be easily wet and stuck by oil.

This property can be utilized to extract diamonds using oil when making synthetic diamonds. However, when diamond surfaces are chemically modified with certain ions, they are expected to become so hydrophilic that they can stabilize multiple layers of water ice at human body temperature.

The surface of diamonds is partially oxidized. The oxidized surface can be reduced by heat treatment under hydrogen flow. That is to say, this heat treatment partially removes oxygen-containing functional groups.

The structure gradually changes into sp 2 C above this temperature. Thus, diamonds should be reduced under this temperature. At room temperature, diamonds do not react with any chemical reagents including strong acids and bases.

It increases in temperature from red to white heat and burns with a pale blue flame, and continues to burn after the source of heat is removed.

By contrast, in air the combustion will cease as soon as the heat is removed because the oxygen is diluted with nitrogen. A clear, flawless, transparent diamond is completely converted to carbon dioxide; any impurities will be left as ash.

Jewelers must be careful when molding the metal in a diamond ring. Consequently, pyrotechnic compositions based on synthetic diamond powder can be prepared.

The resulting sparks are of the usual red-orange color, comparable to charcoal, but show a very linear trajectory which is explained by their high density.

Diamond has a wide bandgap of 5. This means that pure diamond should transmit visible light and appear as a clear colorless crystal.

Colors in diamond originate from lattice defects and impurities. The diamond crystal lattice is exceptionally strong, and only atoms of nitrogen , boron and hydrogen can be introduced into diamond during the growth at significant concentrations up to atomic percents.

Transition metals nickel and cobalt , which are commonly used for growth of synthetic diamond by high-pressure high-temperature techniques, have been detected in diamond as individual atoms; the maximum concentration is 0.

Virtually any element can be introduced to diamond by ion implantation. Nitrogen is by far the most common impurity found in gem diamonds and is responsible for the yellow and brown color in diamonds.

Boron is responsible for the blue color. Plastic deformation is the cause of color in some brown [45] and perhaps pink and red diamonds. Colored diamonds contain impurities or structural defects that cause the coloration, while pure or nearly pure diamonds are transparent and colorless.

Most diamond impurities replace a carbon atom in the crystal lattice , known as a carbon flaw. The most common impurity, nitrogen, causes a slight to intense yellow coloration depending upon the type and concentration of nitrogen present.

Diamonds of a different color, such as blue, are called fancy colored diamonds and fall under a different grading scale. In , the Wittelsbach Diamond , a Diamonds cut glass, but this does not positively identify a diamond because other materials, such as quartz, also lie above glass on the Mohs scale and can also cut it.

Diamonds can scratch other diamonds, but this can result in damage to one or both stones. Hardness tests are infrequently used in practical gemology because of their potentially destructive nature.

Diamonds also possess an extremely high refractive index and fairly high dispersion. Taken together, these factors affect the overall appearance of a polished diamond and most diamantaires still rely upon skilled use of a loupe magnifying glass to identify diamonds "by eye".

Diamonds are extremely rare, with concentrations of at most parts per billion in source rock. Loose diamonds are also found along existing and ancient shorelines , where they tend to accumulate because of their size and density.

Most diamonds come from the Earth's mantle , and most of this section discusses those diamonds. However, there are other sources.

Some blocks of the crust, or terranes , have been buried deep enough as the crust thickened so they experienced ultra-high-pressure metamorphism.

These have evenly distributed microdiamonds that show no sign of transport by magma. In addition, when meteorites strike the ground, the shock wave can produce high enough temperatures and pressures for microdiamonds and nanodiamonds to form.

A common misconception is that diamonds are formed from highly compressed coal. Coal is formed from buried prehistoric plants, and most diamonds that have been dated are far older than the first land plants.

It is possible that diamonds can form from coal in subduction zones , but diamonds formed in this way are rare, and the carbon source is more likely carbonate rocks and organic carbon in sediments, rather than coal.

Diamonds are far from evenly distributed over the Earth. A rule of thumb known as Clifford's rule states that they are almost always found in kimberlites on the oldest part of cratons , the stable cores of continents with typical ages of 2.

The Argyle diamond mine in Australia , the largest producer of diamonds by weight in the world, is located in a mobile belt , also known as an orogenic belt , [61] a weaker zone surrounding the central craton that has undergone compressional tectonics.

Instead of kimberlite, the host rock is lamproite. Lamproites with diamonds that are not economically viable are also found in the United States, India and Australia.

Kimberlites can be found in narrow 1 to 4 meters dikes and sills, and in pipes with diameters that range from about 75 m to 1.

Fresh rock is dark bluish green to greenish gray, but after exposure rapidly turns brown and crumbles. They are a mixture of xenocrysts and xenoliths minerals and rocks carried up from the lower crust and mantle , pieces of surface rock, altered minerals such as serpentine , and new minerals that crystallized during the eruption.

The texture varies with depth. The composition forms a continuum with carbonatites , but the latter have too much oxygen for carbon to exist in a pure form.

Instead, it is locked up in the mineral calcite Ca C O 3. All three of the diamond-bearing rocks kimberlite, lamproite and lamprophyre lack certain minerals melilite and kalsilite that are incompatible with diamond formation.

In kimberlite, olivine is large and conspicuous, while lamproite has Ti- phlogopite and lamprophyre has biotite and amphibole.

They are all derived from magma types that erupt rapidly from small amounts of melt, are rich in volatiles and magnesium oxide , and are less oxidizing than more common mantle melts such as basalt.

These characteristics allow the melts to carry diamonds to the surface before they dissolve. Kimberlite pipes can be difficult to find.

They weather quickly within a few years after exposure and tend to have lower topographic relief than surrounding rock. If they are visible in outcrops, the diamonds are never visible because they are so rare.

In any case, kimberlites are often covered with vegetation, sediments, soils or lakes. In modern searches, geophysical methods such as aeromagnetic surveys , electrical resistivity and gravimetry , help identify promising regions to explore.

This is aided by isotopic dating and modeling of the geological history. Then surveyors must go to the area and collect samples, looking for kimberlite fragments or indicator minerals.

The latter have compositions that reflect the conditions where diamonds form, such as extreme melt depletion or high pressures in eclogites.

However, indicator minerals can be misleading; a better approach is geothermobarometry , where the compositions of minerals are analyzed as if they were in equilibrium with mantle minerals.

Finding kimberlites requires persistence, and only a small fraction contain diamonds that are commercially viable. The only major discoveries since about have been in Canada.

Since existing mines have lifetimes of as little as 25 years, there could be a shortage of new diamonds in the future.

Diamonds are dated by analyzing inclusions using the decay of radioactive isotopes. Depending on the elemental abundances, one can look at the decay of rubidium to strontium , samarium to neodymium , uranium to lead , argon to argon , or rhenium to osmium.

Those found in kimberlites have ages ranging from 1 to 3. The kimberlites themselves are much younger. Most of them have ages between tens of millions and million years old, although there are some older exceptions Argyle, Premier and Wawa.

Thus, the kimberlites formed independently of the diamonds and served only to transport them to the surface. The reason for the lack of older kimberlites is unknown, but it suggests there was some change in mantle chemistry or tectonics.

No kimberlite has erupted in human history. Such depths occur below cratons in mantle keels , the thickest part of the lithosphere.

These regions have high enough pressure and temperature to allow diamonds to form and they are not convecting, so diamonds can be stored for billions of years until a kimberlite eruption samples them.

Host rocks in a mantle keel include harzburgite and lherzolite , two type of peridotite. The most dominant rock type in the upper mantle , peridotite is an igneous rock consisting mostly of the minerals olivine and pyroxene ; it is low in silica and high in magnesium.

However, diamonds in peridotite rarely survive the trip to the surface. They formed in eclogite but are distinguished from diamonds of shallower origin by inclusions of majorite a form of garnet with excess silicon.

Diamond is thermodynamically stable at high pressures and temperatures, with the phase transition from graphite occurring at greater temperatures as the pressure increases.

Thus, the deeper origin of some diamonds may reflect unusual growth environments. In the first known natural samples of a phase of ice called Ice VII were found as inclusions in diamond samples.

The mantle has roughly one billion gigatonnes of carbon for comparison, the atmosphere-ocean system has about 44, gigatonnes. It can also be altered by surface processes like photosynthesis.

This variability implies that they are not formed from carbon that is primordial having resided in the mantle since the Earth formed.

Instead, they are the result of tectonic processes, although given the ages of diamonds not necessarily the same tectonic processes that act in the present.

Diamonds in the mantle form through a metasomatic process where a C-O-H-N-S fluid or melt dissolves minerals in a rock and replaces them with new minerals.

Diamonds form from this fluid either by reduction of oxidized carbon e. Using probes such as polarized light, photoluminescence and cathodoluminescence , a series of growth zones can be identified in diamonds.

The characteristic pattern in diamonds from the lithosphere involves a nearly concentric series of zones with very thin oscillations in luminescence and alternating episodes where the carbon is resorbed by the fluid and then grown again.

Diamonds from below the lithosphere have a more irregular, almost polycrystalline texture, reflecting the higher temperatures and pressures as well as the transport of the diamonds by convection.

Geological evidence supports a model in which kimberlite magma rose at 4—20 meters per second, creating an upward path by hydraulic fracturing of the rock.

As the pressure decreases, a vapor phase exsolves from the magma, and this helps to keep the magma fluid. Then, at lower pressures, the rock is eroded, forming a pipe and producing fragmented rock breccia.

As the eruption wanes, there is pyroclastic phase and then metamorphism and hydration produces serpentinites. Although diamonds on Earth are rare, they are very common in space.

In meteorites , about three percent of the carbon is in the form of nanodiamonds , having diameters of a few nanometers. Sufficiently small diamonds can form in the cold of space because their lower surface energy makes them more stable than graphite.

The isotopic signatures of some nanodiamonds indicate they were formed outside the Solar System in stars. High pressure experiments predict that large quantities of diamonds condense from methane into a "diamond rain" on the ice giant planets Uranus and Neptune.

Diamonds may exist in carbon-rich stars, particularly white dwarfs. One theory for the origin of carbonado , the toughest form of diamond, is that it originated in a white dwarf or supernova.

The most familiar uses of diamonds today are as gemstones used for adornment , and as industrial abrasives for cutting hard materials.

The markets for gem-grade and industrial-grade diamonds value diamonds differently. The dispersion of white light into spectral colors is the primary gemological characteristic of gem diamonds.

In the 20th century, experts in gemology developed methods of grading diamonds and other gemstones based on the characteristics most important to their value as a gem.

Four characteristics, known informally as the four Cs , are now commonly used as the basic descriptors of diamonds: these are its mass in carats a carat being equal to 0.

A large, flawless diamond is known as a paragon. A large trade in gem-grade diamonds exists. Although most gem-grade diamonds are sold newly polished, there is a well-established market for resale of polished diamonds e.

Secondary alluvial diamond deposits, on the other hand, tend to be fragmented amongst many different operators because they can be dispersed over many hundreds of square kilometers e.

The De Beers company, as the world's largest diamond mining company, holds a dominant position in the industry, and has done so since soon after its founding in by the British imperialist Cecil Rhodes.

De Beers is currently the world's largest operator of diamond production facilities mines and distribution channels for gem-quality diamonds.

As a part of reducing its influence, De Beers withdrew from purchasing diamonds on the open market in and ceased, at the end of , purchasing Russian diamonds mined by the largest Russian diamond company Alrosa.

Further down the supply chain, members of The World Federation of Diamond Bourses WFDB act as a medium for wholesale diamond exchange, trading both polished and rough diamonds.

Once purchased by Sightholders which is a trademark term referring to the companies that have a three-year supply contract with DTC , diamonds are cut and polished in preparation for sale as gemstones 'industrial' stones are regarded as a by-product of the gemstone market; they are used for abrasives.

Recently, diamond cutting centers have been established in China, India, Thailand , Namibia and Botswana. The recent expansion of this industry in India, employing low cost labor, has allowed smaller diamonds to be prepared as gems in greater quantities than was previously economically feasible.

Diamonds prepared as gemstones are sold on diamond exchanges called bourses. There are 28 registered diamond bourses in the world.

Diamonds can be sold already set in jewelry, or sold unset "loose". Mined rough diamonds are converted into gems through a multi-step process called "cutting".

Diamonds are extremely hard, but also brittle and can be split up by a single blow. Therefore, diamond cutting is traditionally considered as a delicate procedure requiring skills, scientific knowledge, tools and experience.

Its final goal is to produce a faceted jewel where the specific angles between the facets would optimize the diamond luster, that is dispersion of white light, whereas the number and area of facets would determine the weight of the final product.

For example, the diamond might be intended for display or for wear, in a ring or a necklace, singled or surrounded by other gems of certain color and shape.

Some of them are special, produced by certain companies, for example, Phoenix , Cushion , Sole Mio diamonds, etc.

The most time-consuming part of the cutting is the preliminary analysis of the rough stone. It needs to address a large number of issues, bears much responsibility, and therefore can last years in case of unique diamonds.

The following issues are considered:. After initial cutting, the diamond is shaped in numerous stages of polishing.

Unlike cutting, which is a responsible but quick operation, polishing removes material by gradual erosion and is extremely time consuming. The associated technique is well developed; it is considered as a routine and can be performed by technicians.

Those flaws are concealed through various diamond enhancement techniques, such as repolishing, crack filling, or clever arrangement of the stone in the jewelry.

Remaining non-diamond inclusions are removed through laser drilling and filling of the voids produced. And the firm created new markets in countries where no diamond tradition had existed before.

Ayer's marketing included product placement , advertising focused on the diamond product itself rather than the De Beers brand, and associations with celebrities and royalty.

Without advertising the De Beers brand, De Beers was advertising its competitors' diamond products as well, [] but this was not a concern as De Beers dominated the diamond market throughout the 20th century.

De Beers still advertises diamonds, but the advertising now mostly promotes its own brands, or licensed product lines, rather than completely "generic" diamond products.

Brown-colored diamonds constituted a significant part of the diamond production, and were predominantly used for industrial purposes.

They were seen as worthless for jewelry not even being assessed on the diamond color scale. After the development of Argyle diamond mine in Australia in , and marketing, brown diamonds have become acceptable gems.

Industrial diamonds are valued mostly for their hardness and thermal conductivity, making many of the gemological characteristics of diamonds, such as the 4 Cs , irrelevant for most applications.

The boundary between gem-quality diamonds and industrial diamonds is poorly defined and partly depends on market conditions for example, if demand for polished diamonds is high, some lower-grade stones will be polished into low-quality or small gemstones rather than being sold for industrial use.

Within the category of industrial diamonds, there is a sub-category comprising the lowest-quality, mostly opaque stones, which are known as bort. Industrial use of diamonds has historically been associated with their hardness, which makes diamond the ideal material for cutting and grinding tools.

As the hardest known naturally occurring material, diamond can be used to polish, cut, or wear away any material, including other diamonds.

Common industrial applications of this property include diamond-tipped drill bits and saws, and the use of diamond powder as an abrasive. Less expensive industrial-grade diamonds, known as bort, with more flaws and poorer color than gems, are used for such purposes.

Specialized applications include use in laboratories as containment for high-pressure experiments see diamond anvil cell , high-performance bearings , and limited use in specialized windows.

The high thermal conductivity of diamond makes it suitable as a heat sink for integrated circuits in electronics.

The mining and distribution of natural diamonds are subjects of frequent controversy such as concerns over the sale of blood diamonds or conflict diamonds by African paramilitary groups.

Only a very small fraction of the diamond ore consists of actual diamonds. The ore is crushed, during which care is required not to destroy larger diamonds, and then sorted by density.

Today, diamonds are located in the diamond-rich density fraction with the help of X-ray fluorescence , after which the final sorting steps are done by hand.

Before the use of X-rays became commonplace, [96] the separation was done with grease belts; diamonds have a stronger tendency to stick to grease than the other minerals in the ore.

Historically, diamonds were found only in alluvial deposits in Guntur and Krishna district of the Krishna River delta in Southern India. Diamond extraction from primary deposits kimberlites and lamproites started in the s after the discovery of the Diamond Fields in South Africa.

Most of these mines are located in Canada, Zimbabwe, Angola, and one in Russia. In the U. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is open to the public, and is the only mine in the world where members of the public can dig for diamonds.

In some of the more politically unstable central African and west African countries, revolutionary groups have taken control of diamond mines , using proceeds from diamond sales to finance their operations.

Diamonds sold through this process are known as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. In response to public concerns that their diamond purchases were contributing to war and human rights abuses in central and western Africa, the United Nations , the diamond industry and diamond-trading nations introduced the Kimberley Process in This is done by requiring diamond-producing countries to provide proof that the money they make from selling the diamonds is not used to fund criminal or revolutionary activities.

Although the Kimberley Process has been moderately successful in limiting the number of conflict diamonds entering the market, some still find their way in.

This is a stringent tracking system of diamonds and helps protect the "conflict free" label of Canadian diamonds. Synthetic diamonds are diamonds manufactured in a laboratory, as opposed to diamonds mined from the Earth.

The gemological and industrial uses of diamond have created a large demand for rough stones. This demand has been satisfied in large part by synthetic diamonds, which have been manufactured by various processes for more than half a century.

However, in recent years it has become possible to produce gem-quality synthetic diamonds of significant size.

The majority of commercially available synthetic diamonds are yellow and are produced by so-called high-pressure high-temperature HPHT processes.

Other colors may also be reproduced such as blue, green or pink, which are a result of the addition of boron or from irradiation after synthesis.

Another popular method of growing synthetic diamond is chemical vapor deposition CVD. The growth occurs under low pressure below atmospheric pressure.

It involves feeding a mixture of gases typically 1 to 99 methane to hydrogen into a chamber and splitting them to chemically active radicals in a plasma ignited by microwaves , hot filament , arc discharge , welding torch or laser.

A diamond simulant is a non-diamond material that is used to simulate the appearance of a diamond, and may be referred to as diamante.

Cubic zirconia is the most common. The gemstone moissanite silicon carbide can be treated as a diamond simulant, though more costly to produce than cubic zirconia.

Both are produced synthetically. Diamond enhancements are specific treatments performed on natural or synthetic diamonds usually those already cut and polished into a gem , which are designed to better the gemological characteristics of the stone in one or more ways.

These include laser drilling to remove inclusions, application of sealants to fill cracks, treatments to improve a white diamond's color grade, and treatments to give fancy color to a white diamond.

Coatings are increasingly used to give a diamond simulant such as cubic zirconia a more "diamond-like" appearance. One such substance is diamond-like carbon —an amorphous carbonaceous material that has some physical properties similar to those of the diamond.

Advertising suggests that such a coating would transfer some of these diamond-like properties to the coated stone, hence enhancing the diamond simulant.

Techniques such as Raman spectroscopy should easily identify such a treatment. Early diamond identification tests included a scratch test relying on the superior hardness of diamond.

This test is destructive, as a diamond can scratch another diamond, and is rarely used nowadays. Instead, diamond identification relies on its superior thermal conductivity.

Electronic thermal probes are widely used in the gemological centers to separate diamonds from their imitations.

These probes consist of a pair of battery-powered thermistors mounted in a fine copper tip. One thermistor functions as a heating device while the other measures the temperature of the copper tip: if the stone being tested is a diamond, it will conduct the tip's thermal energy rapidly enough to produce a measurable temperature drop.

This test takes about two to three seconds. Whereas the thermal probe can separate diamonds from most of their simulants, distinguishing between various types of diamond, for example synthetic or natural, irradiated or non-irradiated, etc.

Those techniques are also used for some diamonds simulants, such as silicon carbide, which pass the thermal conductivity test.

Optical techniques can distinguish between natural diamonds and synthetic diamonds. They can also identify the vast majority of treated natural diamonds.

Laboratories use techniques such as spectroscopy, microscopy and luminescence under shortwave ultraviolet light to determine a diamond's origin.

Several methods for identifying synthetic diamonds can be performed, depending on the method of production and the color of the diamond.

CVD diamonds can usually be identified by an orange fluorescence. Screening devices based on diamond type detection can be used to make a distinction between diamonds that are certainly natural and diamonds that are potentially synthetic.

Those potentially synthetic diamonds require more investigation in a specialized lab. Occasionally, large thefts of diamonds take place.

The gang broke through a perimeter fence and raided the cargo hold of a Swiss-bound plane. The gang have since been arrested and large amounts of cash and diamonds recovered.

The identification of stolen diamonds presents a set of difficult problems. Rough diamonds will have a distinctive shape depending on whether their source is a mine or from an alluvial environment such as a beach or river—alluvial diamonds have smoother surfaces than those that have been mined.

Determining the provenance of cut and polished stones is much more complex. The Kimberley Process was developed to monitor the trade in rough diamonds and prevent their being used to fund violence.

Before exporting, rough diamonds are certificated by the government of the country of origin. Some countries, such as Venezuela, are not party to the agreement.

The Kimberley Process does not apply to local sales of rough diamonds within a country. Diamonds may be etched by laser with marks invisible to the naked eye.

Lazare Kaplan , a US-based company, developed this method. However, whatever is marked on a diamond can readily be removed.

Diamonds have been treasured as gemstones since their use as religious icons in ancient India. Their usage in engraving tools also dates to early human history.

In , the French scientist Antoine Lavoisier used a lens to concentrate the rays of the sun on a diamond in an atmosphere of oxygen , and showed that the only product of the combustion was carbon dioxide , proving that diamond is composed of carbon.

Mined rough diamonds are converted into gems through a multi-step process called "cutting". Diamonds are extremely hard, but also brittle and can be split up by a single blow.

Therefore, diamond cutting is traditionally considered as a delicate procedure requiring skills, scientific knowledge, tools and experience.

Its final goal is to produce a faceted jewel where the specific angles between the facets would optimize the diamond luster, that is dispersion of white light, whereas the number and area of facets would determine the weight of the final product.

For example, the diamond might be intended for display or for wear, in a ring or a necklace, singled or surrounded by other gems of certain color and shape.

Some of them are special, produced by certain companies, for example, Phoenix , Cushion , Sole Mio diamonds, etc.

The most time-consuming part of the cutting is the preliminary analysis of the rough stone. It needs to address a large number of issues, bears much responsibility, and therefore can last years in case of unique diamonds.

The following issues are considered:. After initial cutting, the diamond is shaped in numerous stages of polishing. Unlike cutting, which is a responsible but quick operation, polishing removes material by gradual erosion and is extremely time consuming.

The associated technique is well developed; it is considered as a routine and can be performed by technicians. Those flaws are concealed through various diamond enhancement techniques, such as repolishing, crack filling, or clever arrangement of the stone in the jewelry.

Remaining non-diamond inclusions are removed through laser drilling and filling of the voids produced. And the firm created new markets in countries where no diamond tradition had existed before.

Ayer's marketing included product placement , advertising focused on the diamond product itself rather than the De Beers brand, and associations with celebrities and royalty.

Without advertising the De Beers brand, De Beers was advertising its competitors' diamond products as well, [] but this was not a concern as De Beers dominated the diamond market throughout the 20th century.

De Beers still advertises diamonds, but the advertising now mostly promotes its own brands, or licensed product lines, rather than completely "generic" diamond products.

Brown-colored diamonds constituted a significant part of the diamond production, and were predominantly used for industrial purposes. They were seen as worthless for jewelry not even being assessed on the diamond color scale.

After the development of Argyle diamond mine in Australia in , and marketing, brown diamonds have become acceptable gems. Industrial diamonds are valued mostly for their hardness and thermal conductivity, making many of the gemological characteristics of diamonds, such as the 4 Cs , irrelevant for most applications.

The boundary between gem-quality diamonds and industrial diamonds is poorly defined and partly depends on market conditions for example, if demand for polished diamonds is high, some lower-grade stones will be polished into low-quality or small gemstones rather than being sold for industrial use.

Within the category of industrial diamonds, there is a sub-category comprising the lowest-quality, mostly opaque stones, which are known as bort.

Industrial use of diamonds has historically been associated with their hardness, which makes diamond the ideal material for cutting and grinding tools.

As the hardest known naturally occurring material, diamond can be used to polish, cut, or wear away any material, including other diamonds.

Common industrial applications of this property include diamond-tipped drill bits and saws, and the use of diamond powder as an abrasive.

Less expensive industrial-grade diamonds, known as bort, with more flaws and poorer color than gems, are used for such purposes.

Specialized applications include use in laboratories as containment for high-pressure experiments see diamond anvil cell , high-performance bearings , and limited use in specialized windows.

The high thermal conductivity of diamond makes it suitable as a heat sink for integrated circuits in electronics.

The mining and distribution of natural diamonds are subjects of frequent controversy such as concerns over the sale of blood diamonds or conflict diamonds by African paramilitary groups.

Only a very small fraction of the diamond ore consists of actual diamonds. The ore is crushed, during which care is required not to destroy larger diamonds, and then sorted by density.

Today, diamonds are located in the diamond-rich density fraction with the help of X-ray fluorescence , after which the final sorting steps are done by hand.

Before the use of X-rays became commonplace, [96] the separation was done with grease belts; diamonds have a stronger tendency to stick to grease than the other minerals in the ore.

Historically, diamonds were found only in alluvial deposits in Guntur and Krishna district of the Krishna River delta in Southern India. Diamond extraction from primary deposits kimberlites and lamproites started in the s after the discovery of the Diamond Fields in South Africa.

Most of these mines are located in Canada, Zimbabwe, Angola, and one in Russia. In the U. The Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas is open to the public, and is the only mine in the world where members of the public can dig for diamonds.

In some of the more politically unstable central African and west African countries, revolutionary groups have taken control of diamond mines , using proceeds from diamond sales to finance their operations.

Diamonds sold through this process are known as conflict diamonds or blood diamonds. In response to public concerns that their diamond purchases were contributing to war and human rights abuses in central and western Africa, the United Nations , the diamond industry and diamond-trading nations introduced the Kimberley Process in This is done by requiring diamond-producing countries to provide proof that the money they make from selling the diamonds is not used to fund criminal or revolutionary activities.

Although the Kimberley Process has been moderately successful in limiting the number of conflict diamonds entering the market, some still find their way in.

This is a stringent tracking system of diamonds and helps protect the "conflict free" label of Canadian diamonds. Synthetic diamonds are diamonds manufactured in a laboratory, as opposed to diamonds mined from the Earth.

The gemological and industrial uses of diamond have created a large demand for rough stones. This demand has been satisfied in large part by synthetic diamonds, which have been manufactured by various processes for more than half a century.

However, in recent years it has become possible to produce gem-quality synthetic diamonds of significant size. The majority of commercially available synthetic diamonds are yellow and are produced by so-called high-pressure high-temperature HPHT processes.

Other colors may also be reproduced such as blue, green or pink, which are a result of the addition of boron or from irradiation after synthesis.

Another popular method of growing synthetic diamond is chemical vapor deposition CVD. The growth occurs under low pressure below atmospheric pressure.

It involves feeding a mixture of gases typically 1 to 99 methane to hydrogen into a chamber and splitting them to chemically active radicals in a plasma ignited by microwaves , hot filament , arc discharge , welding torch or laser.

A diamond simulant is a non-diamond material that is used to simulate the appearance of a diamond, and may be referred to as diamante.

Cubic zirconia is the most common. The gemstone moissanite silicon carbide can be treated as a diamond simulant, though more costly to produce than cubic zirconia.

Both are produced synthetically. Diamond enhancements are specific treatments performed on natural or synthetic diamonds usually those already cut and polished into a gem , which are designed to better the gemological characteristics of the stone in one or more ways.

These include laser drilling to remove inclusions, application of sealants to fill cracks, treatments to improve a white diamond's color grade, and treatments to give fancy color to a white diamond.

Coatings are increasingly used to give a diamond simulant such as cubic zirconia a more "diamond-like" appearance.

One such substance is diamond-like carbon —an amorphous carbonaceous material that has some physical properties similar to those of the diamond.

Advertising suggests that such a coating would transfer some of these diamond-like properties to the coated stone, hence enhancing the diamond simulant.

Techniques such as Raman spectroscopy should easily identify such a treatment. Early diamond identification tests included a scratch test relying on the superior hardness of diamond.

This test is destructive, as a diamond can scratch another diamond, and is rarely used nowadays. Instead, diamond identification relies on its superior thermal conductivity.

Electronic thermal probes are widely used in the gemological centers to separate diamonds from their imitations. These probes consist of a pair of battery-powered thermistors mounted in a fine copper tip.

One thermistor functions as a heating device while the other measures the temperature of the copper tip: if the stone being tested is a diamond, it will conduct the tip's thermal energy rapidly enough to produce a measurable temperature drop.

This test takes about two to three seconds. Whereas the thermal probe can separate diamonds from most of their simulants, distinguishing between various types of diamond, for example synthetic or natural, irradiated or non-irradiated, etc.

Those techniques are also used for some diamonds simulants, such as silicon carbide, which pass the thermal conductivity test.

Optical techniques can distinguish between natural diamonds and synthetic diamonds. They can also identify the vast majority of treated natural diamonds.

Laboratories use techniques such as spectroscopy, microscopy and luminescence under shortwave ultraviolet light to determine a diamond's origin.

Several methods for identifying synthetic diamonds can be performed, depending on the method of production and the color of the diamond.

CVD diamonds can usually be identified by an orange fluorescence. Screening devices based on diamond type detection can be used to make a distinction between diamonds that are certainly natural and diamonds that are potentially synthetic.

Those potentially synthetic diamonds require more investigation in a specialized lab. Occasionally, large thefts of diamonds take place.

The gang broke through a perimeter fence and raided the cargo hold of a Swiss-bound plane. The gang have since been arrested and large amounts of cash and diamonds recovered.

The identification of stolen diamonds presents a set of difficult problems. Rough diamonds will have a distinctive shape depending on whether their source is a mine or from an alluvial environment such as a beach or river—alluvial diamonds have smoother surfaces than those that have been mined.

Determining the provenance of cut and polished stones is much more complex. The Kimberley Process was developed to monitor the trade in rough diamonds and prevent their being used to fund violence.

Before exporting, rough diamonds are certificated by the government of the country of origin. Some countries, such as Venezuela, are not party to the agreement.

The Kimberley Process does not apply to local sales of rough diamonds within a country. Diamonds may be etched by laser with marks invisible to the naked eye.

Lazare Kaplan , a US-based company, developed this method. However, whatever is marked on a diamond can readily be removed.

Diamonds have been treasured as gemstones since their use as religious icons in ancient India. Their usage in engraving tools also dates to early human history.

In , the French scientist Antoine Lavoisier used a lens to concentrate the rays of the sun on a diamond in an atmosphere of oxygen , and showed that the only product of the combustion was carbon dioxide , proving that diamond is composed of carbon.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the mineral. For the gemstone, see Diamond gemstone. Allotrope of carbon often used as a gemstone and an abrasive.

The slightly misshapen octahedral shape of this rough diamond crystal in matrix is typical of the mineral.

Its lustrous faces also indicate that this crystal is from a primary deposit. Main article: Material properties of diamond.

When I watched this show, one thing constantly popped up in my head. That was, "This show is incredibly similar to Haikyu".

Not only do these shows revolve around high school sports, but the main characters are determined first years who are striving to be the 'ace' of their team.

In an instant, they develop a rivalry with another boy but realize quickly that the team cannot do well without either of them. The main event of both shows is the yearly national high school tournament in which they partake, attempting to bring back their high school's former glory.

With lots of practise and intense matches, both main character's skills begin to shine, gaining them acknowledgement from their 3rd year seniors who for them, this will be one of their last if not their last high school tournament.

Both anime are a lot similar where the main leads were inspired to join their respected sports. They slowly both strongly exhaled at it while earning the heart of the opponents and friends.

Great funny, Action pack sporty anime that will make you laugh cry and jump out of your seat to cheer. If you like Haikyuu, you will also enjoy Ace of Diamond.

The character relationships and love of the sport are very similar, and the intensity is no different between each series. Both anime are sports anime where the main protagonist is focused on trying to become the ace of their team.

Both Hinata and Sawamura have formidable opponents to compete with for the title of ace, and have prominent character development throughout the story.

Hinata and Sawamura are both outgoing and charismatic characters who are beneficial to the team, even if they aren't in their preferred position.

However, Haikyuu!! They're both sports animes that concentrate on a team that was priviously very famous but then went down, and those teams, through the anime, will get stronger!

It also concentrates in more than one character that wants to be stronger, and those two characters will become stronger and give they're best to not be left behind by the other character!

I won't say more, if you wanna know more, please see the anime and I hope you love it, like I did!!!!!!!! If you like enjoyable shounen sports series these two are very similar with one another.

They have decent shounen writing and a lot of likable characters. Haikyuu is a lot popular but Diamond no ace is just as good and sometimes better.

Everything about these two anime are the same, except one is baseball and one is volleyball!!! Both are very exciting anime!!

Diamond no Ace is similar to Haikyuu!! A plucky young teenager who loves to play sports enters high school and joins a sports club where he is discovered to be very talented but does not possess super powers Along the way, the team struggles to reach the nationals and meets all sorts of other amazing teams and they the teams become rivals and form friendships which are reinforced by the training camp arc.

Oh, yeah and both have great animation. In short, if you like the one you will post probably like the other Both being sports anime will give you the same chills with the great OVAs you are looking for in a baseball setting.

Botha are one of the best sports anime. However, Diamond no ace has much more comedy than haikyuu. But overall i will say haikyuu is bettter.

Still diamond no ace has its own best moments. Worth watching both. I am not really a fan of volleyball, but this show was just so entertaining and funny that I had to finish it.

I felt the same way about Ace of the Diamond though. Volleyball actually seems interesting to me, but Baseball is nothing I'm interested in.

I decided to watch it one day though. Ace of the Diamond is hilarious! I might enjoy it even more than Haikyuu!! They are both hilarious and very interesting.

Baseball seems so interesting as I watched through the show. I especially love the main character in Ace of the Diamond. He is so stupid at times, but he has such a pure heart.

Ace of the Diamond was boring some episodes, but I would still definitely recommend it. Watch a few episodes, and if you don't like it then it's not your thing.

It's a long show, so be prepared if you plan on watching the whole thing. Ookiku Furikabutte add permalink.

Both are realistic anime based on baseball. Both feature exciting scenes, an unpredictable plot and excellent comedy. As for differences, DnA has a much stronger shounen element to it, with a huge and yet amazing cast, great music and an impressive number of scenes that really get the viewer fired up, while Oofuri is more technical, unique and original, and all in all has a very realistic feel to it.

Read recommendations by 9 more users. They're both baseball anime with the main character being a pitcher, who's pitching got a certain quirk due to never receiving proper coaching.

They're different in that Oofuri's Mihashi is the ace of a new established team and lacks self-confidence, while DnA's Sawamura joins a high school baseball elite school and is overconfident despite being no where near the ability of the regular members of the team.

They're both anime about baseball with the main characters being the pitcher and the catcher. Both are a story of pitchers coming from humble beginnings.

While DnA has a more intense art style and longer episode length than Oofuri, oofuri is still an extremely cute and quirky show that shows teamwork much like DnA.

Oofuri is honestly one of my favorite shows based on the main character alone. Both revolve about baseball, the main characters struggle to work with new team mates.

While both have opposite personalities, they still learn the true meaning of baseball, hardship, and friebdship throughout their journey as a pitcher.

Both are baseball anime, with pitchers as main characters, both baseball team struggling to reach koushien, both had a good balance in both everyday life of the players and gameplay, though personally I believe Ookiku focus a bit more on the former.

Both are comedy, sports anime centred around high school baseball. The catchers for both Ookiku and Daiya no A are pretty smart and they also get a lot of screen time.

Ookiku has more detailed baseball rules explanations; Daiya no A is more light on the explanations and focuses a lot on creating tension, cliffhangers and comedy parts.

Differences: 1. Ookiku has a more laid-back and slice-of-life feel to it; both the art and the soundtrack. In this regard, Daiya no A has a kick-ass soundtrack and sound effects a ball hitting the mitt, the batting sound, etc are really stressed adds tension to the scene and really makes it come alive!

Ookiku's team is a newly-formed team with only 10 members, while Daiya no A's team is from a prestigious baseball high school. The supporting cast members are all great.

You'll find at least 3 or 4 you'll like and will bet that Tetsu captain will be one of them :p 3. Daiya no A's pitcher is the opposite of Mihashi: loud, brash and confident.

They do share one thing: both love to pitch and don't want to leave the mound. Both shows are about baseball, both shows are mainly about the pitcher, and both shows are pretty great.

Major S1 add permalink. Both main heros have similar traits and pitch straight balls only. Both shows have a good humour.

Read recommendations by 7 more users. Both heroes are hot-headed and only pitch straight balls. Also, both are pretty idiotic.

Goro is a massive baseball fan and one of the best players, while Sawamura knows nothing about baseball despite being a pitcher for a while and has to fully build his foundation.

Very similar main characters and style of humor. Both are about baseball and display a good amount of suspense.

They're both anime about baseball with the main character being a hotheaded pitcher. Well, for starters, the two revolve around a guy who loves baseball and always is playing it.

The main characters don't really care if their teamates are good or bad, they just want to play baseball. The two animes are great and you can't get enough of them.

They are both baseball anime. Both anime are about baseball, both main characters are not intelligent however they are excellent at baseball and get stronger as the story progresses.

However Major focuses more on the protagonist while diamond no ace goes more in depth into the entire team and the other teams.

Kuroko no Basket add permalink. In terms of excitement, these anime are top notch. Both manage to keep you on the edge of your seat with interesting games and plenty of suspense.

Each has a cast of interesting and diverse characters that interact with each other beautifully. There's also a decent amount of humor that lightens up each show while they compete against seemingly unbeatable teams.

Their art styles both make the action seem more pleasing and impressive to view. Lastly, they are in my opinion two of the best sports anime there are, with the only occupying the same top tier as them being Hajime no Ippo.

If you like one, you'll most likely enjoy the other. I watched Kuroko no Basket and was looking for a similiar one, then i saw a recommendation for Diamond no Ace.

These two shows are a little bit different, dealing with different problems but they are just great in their own ways. I was not disappointed at all!

Both are about teamwork and personal growth with lots of comedy scenes and very exciting games. They both have great characters with the same passion for their respective sports, although Kagami is more similar to the main character in Diamond no Ace than in Kuroko.

So they have a similar feel to them in terms of characters My first recommendation but I think it'll work!

Although one's about baseball and the other basketball, they both contain the same excitement and adrenaline that you can't get anywhere else.

When watching both shows, you can feel the love and passion for the sport coming from the characters as it slowly rubs off on you.

The production company is the same Production IG , so you can expect high quality animation from both. If you enjoyed one, you'll probably enjoy the other.

Both are quite lengthy in episodes and series', also the theme is SPORT and about the struggles in achieving their goals. They each focus on team work as well as each character being able to improve.

Diamond no ace is a fantastic anime. In comparison to kuroko no Baske it has the same competitive feel of wanting to surpass your rivals and learning from the past mistakes.

It also has that alluring suspense of when you don't know what's going to happen next or if they'll beat the opposing teams.

Both are sports anime, and both mc strives to make their team the best, although at the course of doing so, they will compete with rivals who are doing the same thing.

Both are pretty fast paced, although I would say KnB is more fast paced. They have similar type of comedy and also have the same producer.

Yowamushi Pedal add permalink. Explores friendships, team work, hard work and dedication of each sports striving towards a common goal.

Difference being that Yowapeda is more character background-centric than Daiya. Read recommendations by 5 more users.

Same basic passion for the sport. If you're not sold on at least watching sports anime, one or the other will probably sell you on them.

Yowamush Pedal goes more on the side of showing crazy characters, but it's nevertheless a similar feeling.

If you were told they took place in the same universe, you probably wouldn't be surprised. Both are sports genre anime that don't rely on supernatural ability-like twists.

They stress character development and aren't afraid to have the protagonist or protagonist's team lose in order to strengthen the plot. Sports heavily dependent on strategy and trust in the ones on your team.

Shows how your emotions can get the better of you if you don't keep yourself calm. A lot of simple mind games are played, meaning players try to read the other players actions before they do it.

Both anime are very technical. Reliable senpai-tachi, personal growth, teamwork, exciting and unpredictable gamesraces, rivalry, very good teams.

I was reluctant at first, but had to admit that yowamushi pedal was a nice sport anime too, a little bit different from diamond no ace, but as much captivating.

Comedy moments in both series. Both are sport anime and focus a lot on people's hardship to get into the main group. Cross Game add permalink.

Both are about baseball and wanting to bring one's team to Koshien. Whereas Diamond no Ace is more about the sport and nothing but the sport, Cross Game brings a lot more to the table, such as drama and romance.

Although I find both to be very enjoyable anime, Cross Game holds a special place in my heart Read recommendations by 3 more users. Cross Game and Diamond no Ace are anime series with a sports theme relating to baseball.

The main male protagonist gets involved with the sport. Throughout both series, the main male protagonist trains himself to become better and earn a reputation.

There is competition in both series while also holding a degree of comedy. They both also takes place in a school environment as the main characters meets both friends and rivals.

The buttons can be activated in any order, so send one person to each button to activate the flawless challenge quickly.
