What is a diamond?
Diamond is the hardest naturally occurring mineral known to man (in any large scale quantities, as wurtzite boron nitride is not easily found), and has always been sought after as the finest gem ornament for royalty and the rich, around the world. The ancient Greeks called diamond “adamas” meaning “invincible” such was their admiration for its strength.
A diamond is made from pure Carbon crystals, arranged in a cubic crystal system, the carbon atoms are put under extreme heat & pressure until they change form, this is why most diamonds are found inside volcanic pipes around the world, or downstream in alluvial deposits that have worn away the volcanic rock over time.
Diamonds are part of a crystal system called the cubic crystal system, and because of this, they are singly refractive, this means that when light enters the diamond crystal, it stays as one beam of light through the diamond, the light is not split into 2 separate beams. There are other gemstones that are also cubic, but none quite the same as diamonds, for example, all garnets are also cubic crystals, but they are very different in look and hardness when compared to diamonds.
