A green diamond is extremely rare and highly valued

Green diamonds asscher cut are rare and beautiful

Natural colored diamonds are rare, but only a green diamond is extremely rare. From all the colored diamonds green diamonds and red diamonds are the rarest. Red diamonds need such a unique color formation that even green diamonds are only second rarest, after the stunning

red diamond. However, a green diamond is more expensive than orange, brown, pink or yellow diamonds. Due to the rarity of colored diamonds, the increase in colored diamond engagement rings and wedding rings is rising. Many men are proposing to their loved ones with one of these rare colored diamonds that are cut in for example round shape, emerald shape or radiant shape.

The largest natural green diamond known in the world is the 41 carat Dresden Green. The color of this beautiful green diamond is evenly distributed over the body of the stone. While other colored diamond only owns color at outer sides of the diamond and not at the inner side.

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 a 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.

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 has 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:
