In Mineralogy, a diamond is studied as the second most stable form of carbon; the first being graphite. The superlative physical qualities associated with a diamond are characterized by the covalent bonding between its atoms. This form of carbon is popular for its hardness and thermal conductivity. Cutting and polishing of this element enhances its optical characteristics. There are different types of cuts used to work around the rigid lattice and wide transparency. According to the application, a diamond is cut to attain a clear and colorless appearance, devoid of defects or impurities. In the original form, diamonds are known to display color variations according to the impurities present in them. While boron content gives the diamond a blue color, nitrogen gives it a yellowish tinge, and lattice defects result in a slightly brown hue. The stone displays a high optical dispersion, and distinct and characteristic luster, that makes it one of the most sought after gems. Diamonds are synonymous with excellent mechanical and optical properties that are further enhanced by the right cuts.
