Black Diamonds are Earth mined Or Color Enhanced: types of black diamond depending on origin and process


Black Diamonds, Are they natural or treated?

Let’s get to know about Black Diamonds more…

Many buyers do not know this paradigm!

Which one you will buy out of 3 Carat¬†Natural Black Diamond. First one… or Second one……

Black Diamonds

The first one is of $8000, and the second one at $500 only.

I would not like to spend even $800 for the first one, even though its earth mined natural. The look doesn’t appeal at all. But for second diamond it’s just different. I will open my pockets.

Black diamonds go through absolute radiation treatment to make it black. Under normal lighting circumstances, the color enhanced “black” diamond looks black. However, it is actually very dark green. To observe the exact dark green color, a fiber-optic light source is placed near a thin edge of the diamond. (such as the girdle or culet). This grants the light to illuminate some of the interiors of the stone. The very dark green color that becomes clear and is commonly seen in enhanced black diamonds. The very dark green color that is seen is never seen in natural diamonds. It is a conclusion of radiation treatment.

There are natural black diamonds that are not treated. A natural black diamond has a color that is the result of many inclusions. Most of these inclusions are graphite. Due to the high amount of these dark inclusions, natural black diamonds are mainly opaque. Also, because of these high inclusions, the diamonds very easily break and are difficult to cut. Making them difficult to polish and finish.

There are some large, natural black diamonds that are comparatively famous. The Black Star of Africa at 202.00 Carats and the Black Or off, at 67.50 Carats. Even I have got one weighing 5.55 Carats some years back, that sold for a whopping $20000.

What is a diamond enhancement?

An enhanced black diamond is a natural diamond that is treated to get a uniform color. It is typically much better quality than a “natural” black diamond due to the description of its inclusions. Enhanced black diamonds are stunning when set with contrasting white diamonds. To earn a black diamond is to earn a genuine diamond.
