What will have this gem that makes us all fall in love?
The process of forming a diamond is very long. It can be billions of years since it originated more than 150 kilometers below the earth's surface, at extremely high temperatures and pressures, until you have it in your hands! It is a very special gem, as it is the only one that forms at such a depth, beyond the earth's crust.
Diamond, moreover, is the only gemstone that is made up of a single element: carbon. You've probably heard it many times before: a pencil lead and a diamond are the same thing! And they are not misguided, simply because the carbon atoms of a diamond come together and are organized in a different way than in graphite. This makes the pencil lead so soft that we can write on it, while in the case of diamonds they are so hard that they can only be scratched on contact with other diamonds.
In fact, the word “diamond” refers to its hardness; comes from the Greek "adamas" and means "impossible to break". Just to give you an idea, diamonds are the hardest material on earth, they are 58 times harder than any other element in nature!
“I am a gemologist specializing in diamonds, I was lucky enough to delve into this gem. Its rarity, its optical properties... it wins the title of the most beautiful of gems!”
