While discussing gemstones, we often forget its innate size and effect. An interesting feature about this gem is that it brings people together; especially those wearing the same stone. This may or may not be true with other stones. For example, a person wearing ruby may not necessarily be attracted to another individual wearing ruby. The color yellow brings in a sense of learning and warmth in the wearer. No wonder people who wear this stone seek knowledge.
Chips: The chip is nothing but a blemish on the surface. A small impact can mark a diamond by breaking off a tiny part off its surface.
If you compare the artificial and natural species of diamonds with respect to their weight, then you will find that synthetic ones are heavier than natural ones due to their higher densities. In case of synthetic diamonds, there is a limitation on the growth of these crystals, due to which they very rarely weigh over 1 carat. So if you are looking for a large diamond, synthetic diamonds are not a choice for you.
Now it is clear that it is carbon that is the main raw material for formation of diamonds. Apart from the inorganic carbon found in the Earth's crust, one of the sources of organic carbon could be coal. This may happen in case of subduction, wherein carbon from the Earth's crust travel to the mantle. Even in case of diamonds formed in the impact sites, coal could be a source of carbon. So you cannot rule out the possibility of the role of coal in formation of diamonds. However, there are various theories that negate this belief. Here are some of them.
