According to Gemologists and other leading scientists from around the world, claims that diamonds are able to capture any coloration that exists in the full-rainbow spectrum. Although only most of the primary colors have been identified, other vivid and intense colors can vary from diamond to diamond. Diamonds alone are a very precious gems of the crystalline family and are limited supply. That is why when a new colored diamond is discovered, it tends to become priceless, if not sold for a very high price.
One of the most world’s rarest discoveries ever made in diamond history is the Red Diamond. Red diamonds are the rarest diamonds in the world, which only a few of these precious gems have been discover and is known to exist. Although the element is very rare, the beautiful rock has only been discovered in a carat or less, the only largest red diamond that is said to exist is the Moussaieff Red Diamond. This beauty measures at 5.11 carat- flawless fancy natural colored diamond. It was originally discovered by The William Goldberg Diamond Corporation, sometime around the 1990’s the diamond was discovered and cut. The diamond was then sold to Moussaieff Jewellers Ltd, whom renounced the precious stone as the Moussaieff Red Diamond.
Let have a closer look at this beauty…
How Did This Diamond Obtain Its Rare Color?
The development of coloration in a diamond is still a bit unknown to the gemologist community. However, there are a few theories in which suggests that there are a few possibilities that could be the reason in which the diamond had obtain the red color.
According to experts, it is believed that the diamond structure crystalline lettuce experiences a change in the electron structure whilst it is making its way to the surface from the irrupting pressure and heat from beneath earth’s surface. So far, no such tests have been conducted and currently there aren’t any cases that openly discusses the red diamond crystalline structure and how it came about. Due to its rarity, the red diamond sparks an interest in the gemology community, further experimental trials could proceed in the near future. Some of the experimental trials could consists of coloration process which will teach us how the crystalline takes in different elements and creates a coloration tint formation over time. Such process can take millions of years to happen, however with the technology, they are able to recreate the collision of diamond-matter in the lab in matter of just minutes. Scientists with advanced technology are in the process of structuring a plan in which will deploy the stimulation of diamond formation, through such experiment they are hoping to learn new things in which the gemologist community may not be aware about.
