A natural diamond is a gem, which is formed with geological, natural processes. Some of these gems are very valuable as per their condition. So, shoppers have to understand how to identify them.
The Origin of Natural Diamonds
The history of a natural diamond dates back to over a billion years ago. The very first diamond started to form in the upper mantle (a region deep inside the earth, which is both vulnerable to huge pressures constantly and is very hot). Both intense heat and pressure create an indestructible stone. The only thing in the world that can polish a natural diamond is another diamond.
The upper mantle is located around 100 miles under the earth surface, making it far unreachable for even the largest drills in the world. The giant eruptions took place by volcanoes millions of years ago were the only reason we found diamonds in the world. Such giant eruptions are known as Kimberlite Eruptions. They happened only because of extremely hot temperatures millions of years ago. Around 60% of diamonds in the world come from Africa. But large diamond mines are also located in Australia, Canada, and Russia.
