Diamonds - An April Girl's Best Friend!

 

 

Birthstones & Anniversaries

On almost all modern birthstone lists, diamond is recognized today as the birthstone for April. Diamond is also the gem that marks the 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries.

 

About Diamond

Diamond forms under high temperature and pressure conditions that exist only about 100 miles beneath the earth’s surface. Diamond’s carbon atoms are bonded in essentially the same way in all directions. Another mineral, graphite, also contains only carbon, but its formation process and crystal structure are very different. Graphite is so soft that you can write with it, while diamond is so hard that you can only scratch it with another diamond.

Quick Facts:

58x Harder

Diamonds are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature.

 

“Lucy” in the Sky

Fifty light years from earth, this star is a 10 billion-trillion-trillion carat diamond.

 

1 in 1,000,000

The average yield in most diamond mines is 1 part diamond to 1 million parts host rock.
