Interesting facts about the diamond

The name “diamond” comes from the Greek word “adamas,” which means “invincible” or “indestructible.” This designation underlines the exceptional hardness and durability of this gemstone.

Diamonds are found in various parts of the world including Africa, Russia, Australia, Canada and some regions in South America. They typically form deep beneath the Earth's surface under extreme conditions of heat and pressure and are brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions.

Diamonds come in a wide variety of colors. From "colorless" to yellow and brown to the rare colors such as blue, pink, green and red. A diamond's color is determined by chemical impurities or admixtures during its formation. Colorless diamonds, also known as "white" diamonds, are the most common type, while colored diamonds often have higher value due to their rarity.
