The Anatomy Of A Diamond

 

The diamond is a very rare gem because about one ton of rubble is dug to recover less than half a Carat of Diamond Rough. . Something as beautiful and precious as a Diamond can be found in the deepest and most remote places on the earth. It is a testament of strength, endurance and the uttermost symbol of undying love, no doubt. Each diamond is unique and each one mirrors a story of its journey from the depths inside the earth into a treasured object of adornment. All diamonds share certain features that enables us to contrast and differentiate them from one another. These are called the diamond 4Cs: cut, carat weight, clarity, and color.
