Color and Physical Properties
Diamonds are created out of pure carbon. They have a very strong crystal structure where the carbon atoms in the crystal are especially strongly bonded. They can form octahedral (classical diamond), trapezoidal and dodecahedral crystals.
In their most perfect form they are colorless and with special fire patterns. Naturally, they can be found in all nuances and colors, from white, black, pale pink, yellow, red, orange, green, blue, and brown, and this has to do with impurities of some light elements, like for example nitrogen. Due to the presence of certain foreign atoms the color of diamond can be altered, for example, only one atom of boron that comes on milion atoms of carbon can effectively absorb the color from the red part of the spectrum and thus produce color change to blue. Actually, diamonds are among the purest crystals that can be obtained either in nature or in laboratory.
One of the best known diamonds in the word, the Hope Diamond owns its color due to boron defects. Natural blue diamonds are extremely rare, and incredibly expensive. On the other hand, if there is nitrogen in diamond's crystal structure what will be absorbed is the violet end of the electro-magnetic spectrum which produces yellow color of the diamond.
