The unique color formation of a green diamond

Fancy vivid green diamonds VS2 clarity combine very well with pink diamondsA green diamond owes it color to the millions of years of exposure to natural occurring radiation. This natural radiation creates a green color on the external surface and inside the diamond. This strong radiation pushes into a diamond where it absorbs the red and yellow facets turning it to a green color. Although it is uncommon for a green diamond to have green color that reaches deep inside the diamond.

The secondary colors seen in a green diamond are mostly blue and yellow. Therefore, green diamonds can be a bit bluish green or yellowish green. But if the color of the green diamond is less saturated the diamond will turn out more grayish green or brownish green.

Grading the green color

When a colored diamond is graded to estimate the value of the diamond, the strength of the color is the most important. Color is important because the value of a colored diamond depends on the color intensity. Green diamonds that appear faint can be called mint green. If the green diamond have a more intense color it will be called grass green and after this forest green. The main steps to grade a green colored diamond is to look at the diamond’s hue, saturation, tone and distribution. We will shortly explain these aspects:

  • Diamond hue, the dominant diamond color

  • Diamond saturation, the intensity of the main color in the diamond

  • Diamond tone, the light or dark appearance of the diamond

  • Diamond distribution, how evenly the color is spread across the body of the gem
