Diamonds. Wednesday , April 05th , 2017 - 21:00:10 PM
Black diamonds have been found to contain trace elements of nitrogen and hydrogen. The study published in 2006 analyzed the hydrogen in black diamond samples using infrared-detection instruments and found that the quantity indicated that the mineral formed in a supernova explosion prior to the formation of the Solar System. These diamonds were formed by carbon-rich cosmic dust in an environment near carbon stars. The diamonds were incorporated into solid bodies that subsequently fell to Earth as meteorites.
The most common form of irradiation diamonds comes from alpha particles found in uranium compounds or from percolating groundwater. Green spots on the surface of the diamonds or a thin green film may develop on the skin of the diamond after long exposure to these particles. Many times this green coloration will be removed during the cutting or faceting process.
This was all about what you need to know to spot the difference between diamonds. If you are doubtful, just check these characteristics in the stone you are holding in your hand. Apart from the 4 C's of diamonds, these characteristics are a dead giveaway in case you have a doubt.
