Diamond

 

 


Diamonds are among nature's most precious and beautiful creations.

This hardest gem of all is made of just one element: carbon. It's valued for its colorless nature and purity. Most diamonds are primeval-over a billion years old-and form deep within the earth.

Overview

Diamond forms under high temperature and pressure conditions that exist only about 100 miles beneath the earth's surface. Diamond carbon atoms are bonded in essentially the same way in all directions. Another mineral, graphite, also contains only carbon, but its formation process and crystal structure are very different. Graphite is so soft that you can write with it, while diamond is so hard that you can only scratch it with another diamond.
