Varieties and colors
The description of a diamond always contains a reference to the color.
Diamonds are divided by color into white (colorless), black, and fancy (colored).
White. In most cases, the color of diamonds is yellowish due to impurities. For a more accurate assessment, a diamond color determination scale has been developed: international according to GIA or Russian according to GOST R 52913-2008.
Black. Their peculiarity is a large number of graphite inclusions, which make it difficult to cut and evaluate the stone.
Fantasy. There are 9 basic colors used: green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, red, brown, blue, gray. In the color designation, the dominant color comes first, there are shades (indicated as a secondary color, in the second position). The second characteristic is saturation (intensity). Defined on a scale of 1 to 9 (minor to vivid fantasy).
Colorless. Classic, most expensive look. The term “pure water diamond” means the highest quality of the stone: it is invisible in water.
Blue. The rarest expensive stone with greenish, purple, gray shades. The color of the diamond is created by the impurities of aluminum. Most salons offer radiation-treated blue artificial stone.
Blue. An even rarer variant, highly prized. The color is created by the presence of boron in the composition.
Brown. The color creates iron in its composition. The cheapest of the fancy stones.
Yellow. More expensive than brown, but from the lower price range.
Green. Almost never occurs in nature. The coloring is done with chrome. The cost of 1 carat reaches 250 thousand dollars. Almost all samples are bought by museums or collectors.
Red. One of the most expensive (the price for 1 carat of such a diamond is more than 300 thousand rubles).
The black. Opaque, completely absorbs light. But endowed with a diamond shine. Until recently, it was not considered precious. However, it is found much less often than white stones, it costs several times more than ordinary stones.
Technologists have created affordable options. Crystals are grown under conditions that mimic natural conditions: high temperature and pressure or chemical vapor deposition. Features of education create a structure similar to natural stone.
The most beautiful and high-quality samples of artificial cultivation are cubic zirconia and moissanite.
The laboratory analog is used in jewelry, science and industry.
