Diamond Color

Carbon

Everybody knows that all diamonds are white. Right? Well, that is not quite true. Occurring naturally, over three hundred different colors of diamonds have been identified. They range through the entire spectrum of the rainbow and then some.

Consider that black is the absorption of all light and white is absorption of no light. Speaking technically for a moment, a pure, white diamond made up of carbon, as all diamonds are would have to have its atoms arranged in a perfect tetrahedral lattice. That is to say, if its atoms were to be connected by lines, the lattice work created would have four equal, perfect faces.

In this case, and this case alone, no light would be absorbed and the diamond would appear to be absolutely colorless or white. However, when a diamond is formed deep under ground and subjected to enormous pressure over a long period, the chances are that its atomic integrity is going to be compromised. Thus, it will absorb some light. It will have some degree of color. A pristine, colorless diamond is a rare find.
