Diamonds - the fascinating gifts of the earth
Every diamond is a highly complex and fascinating natural product. Even though diamonds are one of the hardest materials on earth, it possible, even if very rarely, that a diamond can be damaged or even broken by rough treatment.
Diamonds are a modification of pure carbon, which usually forms colourless and transparent crystals. Diamonds take several million years to form. 150 kilometres below the earth’s surface, the carbon solidifies under extremely high temperatures and extremely high pressure. However, diamonds can also emerge when meteorites hit the earth and the carbon present is compressed by the tremendous impact.
