What is a diamond?

The new world of our diamond cuts CONTEXT and SPIRIT begins with an understanding of the nature of the "diamond".

 

Seen chemically, a diamond is pure carbon, which, 2,000 million years ago, was crystallized to mineral in magma 200 km below the surface of the earth at 2,000° C and at a pressure of 70,000 atmospheres. This extreme process of creation gives the diamond unique characteristics.


Later raw diamonds reached the surface of the earth through volcanic eruptions and show up in their various forms and colors.
