Origin

The countries of Russia and Botswana produce the majority of Diamonds. The Jwaneng Mine in Kgalagadi, Botswana, is the world’s richest mine, producing the highest quality carat diamonds. The government of Botswana owns it.

Australia, Brazil, China, and South Africa are some of the other countries that produce commercial-quality diamonds.

The United States of America has more than a 40% consumer base in the diamond market. However, it does not have any major commercial mines, except for a few. These are primarily found in Madhya Pradesh(about 90%) and in fewer parts of Andhra Pradesh and Chattisgarh in India.

Price Factors

Colour;

As in most cases of Gemstones, it is a dominant factor in determining Diamond Stone Price. Diamond Stone comes in a variety of colors including grey, blue, yellow, orange, pink, and red. However, colored diamonds are considered lower quality because of impurities. Generally, colorless diamonds are of the highest quality.

Inclusions;

A high-quality diamond will have very few inclusions. Inclusions are the nasty blemishes created when diamonds go through extreme pressures and heat under Earth’s crust. If there are many inclusions in the Diamond, it will be a low-quality stone. Also, if the Diamond is too perfect with no inclusions, it might be a fake one or synthetic. An untrained eye cannot distinguish between natural inclusions and created ones.

Cut;

Usually, people think of Diamond cuts in the heart or oval shape. But cutting and faceting a diamond is mostly about how effectively it can reflect the light and sparkle with the maximum intensity. Therefore, the cut is a significant factor in deciding the value. Diamond faceting, polishing, and final finishing require technically perfect labor.

Carat Weight;

It is an essential factor in determining the price. One carat weight of Diamond contains 0.2 grams or 200 milligrams. The cost of a diamond significantly increases as the carat weight increases. The rarity and desirable factor grow due to its beauty and brightness.

Use for which rashi?

Venus, the planet, is associated with Diamond. It protects the wearer from the harmful effects of Venus. Diamonds are very advantageous for having Shukra Mahadasha and Antardasha in their horoscope.

But very few people can enjoy wearing diamonds because of their expensive cost and rarity. Taurus, Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn, and Aries ascendants can wear diamonds as Venus favors these.

Diamond Stone Identification

1. Fog Test

Take the diamond stone, ring, or pendant you want to test and exhale some fog on it. Wait for a few seconds; if the mist fades away immediately, congrats, your diamond stone is natural. If not, it takes some time to disappear. It’s a fake one. It happens because they conduct heat (heat of breathing in this case) and instantly disperse the moisture or fog.

2. Heating Test

Precaution: Follow proper safety measures while performing this test.

Take a glass or bowl of cold water. Now take a lighter and heat the Diamond with its help for roughly 40-50 seconds. Immediately, put the stone in the cold water. If a diamond stone gets broken or distorted in some way, it’s a fake diamond.

Natural diamonds will remain unaffected by the situation because diamonds are one of the hardest substances in the world and will remain uninfluenced by such tests.

3. Read Through Test

This test is used to examine the refractivity of diamonds. Take a newspaper or a book and place it flat on a surface. Ensure adequate lighting and no shadow is cast upon a diamond or newspaper while doing the test. Now try to read a newspaper through a diamond. If you can read it, even if it’s a little blurry, it’s a fake one.

It happens because a natural diamond stone refracts the light in all directions(because of its cuts and facets), due to which we’ll not be able to read the text.

4. Ask The Expert

Take your diamond stone to an expert gemologist or a jeweler. They’ll provide you with all the necessary parameters (like refraction, cuts, facets, light intensity, and imperfections) required for Diamond verification using various instruments like a microscope and jeweler’s loupe. Always ask for the certification while buying or testing.
