Color formation of yellow diamonds
Yellow diamonds are one of the most familiar colored diamonds in the diamond industry. But if a colorless diamond is slightly yellow, it does not mean it becomes a yellow diamond. Because yellow diamonds are more expensive than a colorless diamond with yellow, because then it belongs to a fancy colored diamond. Because colorless diamonds are valued by the lack of color so any trace of color is not good for the value. However, colored diamonds will get more and more expensive by the intensity and distribution of the diamond color. A yellow diamond that goes lower than GIA grading Z falls into the fancy color.
The yellow color in diamonds is due to the presence of nitrogen. This presence of nitrogen helps the yellow color formation in the structure of the crystal. In the formation of most yellow diamonds, the few nitrogen atoms are substituted for carbon.
