Everything about a Black diamond!

Black diamonds are one the most amazing and attractive gemstone of all, they are instant eye catcher and looks astounding on the wearer. But have we ever wondered that why black diamonds are so attractive? So many fine jewelry designers have been implementing black diamonds into their designs the past few years with much success, but I don’t think most people truly understand what they are buying. I see so many websites that are selling black diamond’s with no disclosure of any gem treatments and with price tags that might seem higher than necessary for an opaque black stone. It is important to understand what exactly a black diamond is and how savvy marketing and design trends brought this otherwise low-grade stone to the forefront. We all thought that black diamond are just hunk of coals but No, black diamond’s aren’t just hunks of coal, and no, they are not less expensive just because they are black.

• Looking out for natural black diamond in the market could be a little tricky task. But, having one could be not more than a blessing. These black diamonds are technically real diamonds filled with black color. So, there lusture and everything is just as similar to the real diamond out there.
• Natural black diamonds, for the most part are not what gemologists consider gem quality but they aren’t coal either. Instead, they are poly crystalline diamonds known as Carbonado that are a combination of smaller diamonds, graphite and carbon crystals. Though this type of diamond is tougher than a colorless diamond due to its composition, the porous gems are also harder to cut and polish.
• The question is from where do these diamonds come from? So Carbonado, commonly known as the “black diamond”, is the toughest form of natural diamond. It is an impure form of poly crystalline diamond consisting of diamond, graphite, and amorphous carbon. It is found primarily in alluvial deposits in the Central African Republic and in Brazil.
• A natural colored gemstone diamond is much more expensive than a colorless diamond. A very high quality natural black diamond is incredibly rare since most Carbonado is made up of minuscule, porous crystals. Due to this rarity, a natural gem quality black diamond can be more expensive than a colorless diamond of similar quality. Yes, don’t hold your breath though! These types of natural black diamonds are seldom ever seen on the retail market.
• Also many people are fooled by the fake black diamond to be a real one so doesn’t be fooled if you see a piece of jewelry with an Alaskan black diamond in it. These stones aren’t diamonds at all but are instead hematite. Hematite is a mineral form of iron oxide. This mineral is often mixed with another form of iron oxide called Magnetite and some other mineral to create Magnetic Hematite. This stone is commonly used in magnetic healing therapy bracelets which are said to help alleviate pain and other ailments.

So, these diamond looks alluring but buying one that too natural black diamond could be an expensive one. If you want to buy one do consult a trusted jeweler because chance of people making you fool is quite high when it comes to black diamond. Else, no doubt these diamonds are quite interesting and astounding!
