He is the king of gems.

The formation is made of carbon in the earth’s crust with a specific temperature and pressure, then cooling at a specified time and thus the crystal is created. Similar conditions are created in a volcanic eruption.

The reaction is 2Fec + CO2 = 2FEO + S2 + C ⇒ DIAMOND

4Cs are what determine the quality of a diamond and therefore its price.

  1. C Color = Color
  2. C Clarity = How many inclusions does it have
  3. C Cut = Cut (Round, Emerald, Princess Cut etc.)
  4. C Carat = Weight in carats (5 Carat = 1gr)
