A Large Selection of Gorgeous and Exquisite Diamonds
Diamonds have been a source of fascination to mankind for centuries. Diamonds are the hardest, longest lasting and most brilliant of all of the precious gem stones. Our word “diamond” comes from the Greek word adamas, which means “unconquerable”.
Scientifically, a diamond is a transparent gem made of carbon, one of the earth’s most common elements. Diamonds began forming very early in the Earth’s history, when the Earth was formed, and the center of the planet was subjected to temperature and pressure extremes. These extreme conditions caused deposits of carbon, deep in the Earth to crystallize. As the surface of the Earth cooled, shifts in the Earth’s mantle caused volcanic activity which carried the diamond crystals from the center of the Earth to the surface with the volcano’s lava.
