What are diamonds?
Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man with the highest rating of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Only a diamond can scratch another diamond. They are made of pure carbon, making them the only gemstones made of just one element. Interestingly, carbon is the building block that is found in every living thing on Earth.
What makes diamonds so hard is their unique crystal structure, the specific arrangement of carbon atoms. Millions and millions of years ago when the continents were formed, enough heat and pressure were present deep inside the Earth to create diamonds. They have found their way to the surface through the eruption of volcanoes and are found in rock formed by the volcanoes, called kimberlite. Today, diamonds are mined in about 25 countries.
Diamonds repel water but unfortunately readily accept wax or grease. Diamonds will become dirty and dull when they are exposed to skin oils, perfumes, lotions, dirt, and dust. These elements adhere to the diamond’s surface and reduce its brilliance. To clean your diamond, steaming or ultrasonic cleaners are acceptable. Your diamond jewelry may also be cleaned with a soft-bristled brush or a cloth with jewelry cleaner from Sycamore Jewelers.
