Be amazed by nature’s beauty, colored diamonds
Fancy blue diamonds are among other colored diamonds one of the more rare and beautiful diamonds. It takes a unique natural formation to get the color of the diamond intense enough to be present. For example, yellow diamonds, are the result of the presence of nitrogen in the diamond creation. In other words, colored diamonds go through a unique formation which makes them extra rare. The blue diamond owes its color to the presence of boron atoms. The color of the blue diamonds gets more intense if the concentration of the boron is higher. Because nature determines the amount of boron, the blue diamonds will not be the same color every time. As result, there are several natural fancy blue diamonds, usually classified blue, grayish blue, greenish blue, turquoise or aquamarine.
