◊ Black diamonds are a beautiful contradiction to white diamonds. Unlike white diamonds, they don't reflect light, but rather absorb it. Black diamonds have a different crystal structure than any other type of diamond. They are still a 10 on the Moh's scale, but have a polycrystalline structure, which means they are made up of millions of crystals, rather than just one.

◊ The word diamond comes from the ancient Greek adámas, meaning unbreakable. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to over 3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks.
