Black Diamonds

June 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 182

Black diamonds are a form of diamonds that have a characteristic dark brown or black colour as opposed to the more popular colour-less or translucent diamonds. Black diamonds are more scientifically known as Carbonado. It is a natural polycrystalline form of diamond and it is naturally found in alluvial deposits in some parts of Africa and Central America.

While this might not seem like the obvious choice for jewellery material, simply because it does not have as much shine as the regular diamonds, it is indeed becoming increasingly popular in the jewellery industry. They have begun to make their appearance in the jewellery market, mainly because of the marketing tactics, but nonetheless, these are very expensive forms of diamond as they are also very rare. For the people who take great pride in the pricing of their jewellery, this might seem like a nice option, because possessing a black diamond can go a long way in stating your financial status. These are still very hard to find as many Jewellers consider them to be imperfect and very hard and unprofitable to work with, so if you are looking to lay your hands on one of these you are probably going to have to contact a big time dealer and make special inquiries. You are more than likely not going to find them in stores, right now, but at the rate at which they are becoming more popular it will become more apparent.

You should also be mindful that if you are looking to purchase one of these, because of their nature, it will be difficult for even the most adept jeweller or jewellery specialist to discern between the fake ones and the legit original black diamonds. As such many jewellers might want to take advantage of this to rip off unsuspecting customers into believing that it is the real deal when it is actually a fake.

The contemporary trend for these black diamonds is that they are worn as men's ring more often than women will wear them. This might be due to the fact that women are more interested in the shine and the glimmer that the regular diamonds bring as opposed to the dull and uninteresting appearance that comes with the black diamonds. Black diamonds are typically somewhere in between graphite and the regular pure diamond, sort of like meat that has cooked medium, not quite done, and it is usually a scattered array of atoms rather than following the well-known crystalline pattern we have come to know from the more popular forms of diamond. There are some ultra-rare pure fully crystalline diamonds that still appear black, these have all the properties of regular diamonds but are black, they are worth a fortune and extremely rare to come across. Have fun searching for that precious stone.
