Hope diamond is the world's largest blue diamond. As of now, it is housed in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C., and its size is 45.52 carats. The sparkling blue color is due to the presence of boron. When it is passed under ultraviolet rays, it displays red phosphorescence.
To get started on a diamond willow sanding project, you will first need to make sure you have the proper tools on hand. Gather up items like chisels, scrapers, knives (not the foldable kind), rasps, block panes, and the right grade sandpaper. When accumulating these tools, you need to keep in mind that this is a hand-carving and sanding project that can result in serious injuries if not implemented safely. Basically, watch out for the hand that is holding the diamond willow at all times!
India was considered as the only source of diamonds until the 18th century. India had a plenty of diamond mills at that time which was considered as one of an essential source of diamonds. Though, India still has many diamond mills that are capable to meet the requirements of diamonds throughout the world. But, later many other sources were identified which contained elements and potential of delivering diamonds. Brazil was one of the major sources of diamonds along with India during the 18th century.
The more scaring it has, the nicer the stick. That's what to look for when out "hunting" for good pieces. The ones that are really scared up. The stuff seems to grow like weeds. Although, when looking for the first time, it doesn't look much like the finished product. It's best to have someone point it out for you to get you going. Once you cut and peel a few it'll be easy to identify. Pealing the bark off is kind of a hassle but if done at the right time of year it's not bad.
