The coveted stones are only created under extreme conditions in the earth's interior

Every girl dreams of one day wearing a diamond on her finger. Audrey Hepburn wore one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world for the movie poster of Breakfast at Tiffany's - one of the actress' most iconic images. Marylin Monroe sings “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” in the film "Blondes Preferred". But admiration for diamonds has its origins in antiquity: the word is derived from the Greek “adamas”, which means invincible.

The Greeks also believed that diamonds were the Tears of the gods be. The Romans, on the other hand, thought the precious stones were fallen stars. Either way - diamonds have always been revered all over the world. Incidentally, the Romans were not wrong at all: diamonds are made of carbon, which is also a component of stars, so it is likely that many burned out stars are crossed by diamonds.

Brilliant cut diamonds

It begins in the depths of the earth

The earthly diamonds are created underground: Between 150 and 650 kilometers depth, in the liquid rock of the earth's mantle, the carbon atoms move closer together and thus form the coveted stones. These are extreme pressure and considerable heat necessary to form peridotite and eclogite diamonds from the deep rock. The diamonds then have to reach the surface of the earth relatively quickly, otherwise they will deteriorate into worthless graphite. This happens through volcanic eruptions, in which parts of the rock are carried away by the lava and the diamonds are transported in this way.

According to this, diamonds can be found in the igneous vents of the volcanoes. They came to the surface of the earth through volcanic eruptions - and became accessible to us. Diamonds usually come in the shape of dodecahedra (12-faced) or octahedron (8-faced), but there are also cube-shaped stones and other rare shapes. The crystal structure of the gemstone gives it its special properties: the good refraction of light, its hardness and the fluorescence behavior.
