What are Black Diamonds and its Worth ? As a manufacturer, wholesaler and retail store owner and an online seller of fancy colored diamonds (enhanced black diamonds) including blue and black diamonds, I get this particular question a lot and its very difficult to give a simple answer as its a very interesting stone and has lot of information attached to it! Infact if you google, you will find it very difficult to get a straight answer in a concise format so with this post I am just going to answer the question (blog's title). Here's the deal : Black diamonds so called "Carbonado", but it is diamond).They don't sparkle too because due to the fact they are black color stage, they absorb light

are real (It's still a pure carbon crystal, technically and by laboratory terms a much unless they are of AAA nature, coated or heat enhanced to get to the rather than refract it.

They are real earth mined diamonds, but they have a different crystalline structure. The regular crystal structure of the diamond is what causes the sparkle: light comes in, bounces around in a pre-defined/predictable way, and is bounced out. Black diamonds have a "polycrystalline" structure, which means it's kind of like many diamonds smashed together. Since they're all at different angles, and so you can't carve it to make sparkles. Instead, the light just gets absorbed, making it black. An Interesting take on the origin of Black Diamonds A team of U.S. geologists have published evidence relating to a different origin of these black diamonds: interstellar-outer space. They have found that loose black diamonds contain fine elements of nitrogen and hydrogen which they claim are sure indicators of an extraterrestrial origin. The study by renowned researchers found that the chemical properties of carbonado indicated that the mineral formed in a supernova explosion that took place prior to the formation of our Solar System about 4.5 Billion Years ago. In this sense, Carbonado is found similar to carbon-rich cosmic dust, likely formed in an environment near carbon stars. The diamonds were eventually incorporated into solid bodies that subsequently fell to Earth as meteorites


so its safe to say that they are a good 4 Billion + Years old. (Nearly as old as our Planet).
