history about Diamonds with you.....
Diamonds - "A Girls Best Friend"
“Diamonds - A girl’s best friend” - You must have
heard this phrase or similar phrases a lot of
times. Some jewelry makers/ sellers use this
phrase in their advertisements too. However, have
you ever wondered what actually a diamond is?
Well, in technical terms, a diamond is just an
arrangement of carbon atoms; a peculiar
arrangement for that matter. It’s the same carbon
atoms that form graphite too (which is used in
your pencil leads). However, with diamonds the
arrangement of carbon atoms is such that it
imparts a glowing look to them. Diamond is
generally found in mines as a shining rock (just
like metals and other materials). However, it is
not as shining as you see it in jewelry. In fact,
if you were to look at diamond in their nascent
form, you would be quite disappointed. This
rock/diamond reveals its full glory only after it
is cut and polished. It is only after this cutting
and polishing that a diamond actually becomes fit
for use in jewelry. Cutting the diamonds require a
great deal of skill. In fact, the glow and the
value of a diamond is dependent on how well it has
been cut by the diamond cutting professional.
Another interesting fact about diamonds is that
they are one of the hardest substances on earth.
In fact, diamonds that are not glorious enough for
use in jewelry are used in industries for cutting
other metals/ materials. Besides being the hardest
substance, diamonds are also one of the toughest
substances on earth. In fact, diamonds are so
tough that they are unaffected by scalding
temperatures as high as 700 deg Celsius. Even
acids are not able to cause any harm to diamonds.
This might be the reason behind the saying
“Diamonds are forever”.
Thus diamonds represent solidarity and shine, and
are indeed ‘A girl’s best friend’
Where Diamonds are Mined.....
Argye mine located in the Kimberley region in the
far north east of Western Australia. Owned by Rio
Tinto, this mine is the world’s largest single
producer of volume of diamonds. However, due to
low proportion of gem quality diamonds it is not
the value leader. It does produce 90-95% of the
world’s supply of pink diamonds.
Diavik is also owned by Rio Tinto, located in
Canada it is a very large mine. It is located
north of Yellowknife and south of the Artic Circle
on an island. The island is connected by an ice
road. It is also an important part of the regions
economy employing more than 700 people and
producing more than 8 million carats annually.
Ekati diamond mine is owned by BHP Billiton and
located south of the artic circle in the Northwest
Territories of Canada. The Ekati is Canada’s first
operational diamond mine. Diamonds mined here are
sold under the Aurias trade name Authenticity is
verified through Canada Mark service. CanadaMark
service is also owned by BHP Billiton Diamonds, Inc.
How Diamonds are Mined.....
We seldom think about how the diamonds we wear
came to us. Natural diamonds, as opposed to
synthetic diamonds or fake diamonds, are mined
from the earth. There are currently two methods of
mining diamonds: Pipe Mining and Alluvial Mining.
When pipe mining is used, the diamonds are
extracted from the earth through volcanic pipes.
These are not man-made pipes. These are natural
pipes in the ground. Shanks are put into the
ground next to the pipes, and tunnels are driven
into the deepest parts of the pipe. The diamonds
are not sorted out at the mine. Instead, huge
rocks that are full of diamonds are brought out of
the mine and moved to a screening plant for
The Alluvial mining method is done in riverbeds
and on beaches. Walls are built to hold back the
water and the sand on the bank or beach is moved
with a bulldozer until the level of earth that
diamonds can be found in is reached. Again, the
diamonds are not sorted here. Instead, the sand
that contains the diamonds is bulldozed into
trucks, and taken to screening plants.
Learning the 4 C's of Diamonds......
Diamonds come in all shapes, color and weight. The
quality of these magnificent stones is determined
by understanding the 4C’s of diamonds. These 4C’s
are - Color, Carat, Clarity and Cut. Let have a
quick look at what these mean.
And so much more.....
