Gemstone | Diamond
Diamonds are among nature’s most precious and beautiful creations.
Diamond is the only gem made of a single element: It is typically about 99.95 per cent carbon. The way a mineral-forms helps to determine its identity. Diamond forms under high temperature and pressure conditions that exist only within a specific depth range (about 100 miles) beneath the earth’s surface.
Diamond is recognised as the birthstone for April. Diamond is also the gem that marks the 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries.
The clarity grading system developed by the GIA has been used throughout the industry as well as by other diamond grading agencies using the following scale.
- IF – Internally Flawless
- VVS – Very Very Small Inclusions*
- VS – Very Small Inclusions
- SI – Small Inclusions
