Green diamonds

Basic facts about green diamonds

Green diamonds thank their color to the fact that they have been in contact with natural radiation sources while they were forming millions of years ago. The diamond crystal lattice structure is changed by radiation of alpha, beta and gamma rays, combined with intense heat. This happens particularly close to the surface of the diamond, but when the temperature and radiation is high enough it can turn the whole stone into green. The alpha rays will only enter the surface, while the much more rare beta and gamma rays will penetrate the diamond and will give it its internal color.

Green diamonds are mainly found in South America and Africa. Most often they will come with secondary colors into the blue or yellow range of hues.

Famous green diamonds

The Dresden green diamond is a 40.70ct natural green diamond which has been displayed in the German city Dresden for the past two centuries. It is believed to have been found in India, but historical records only tell us that it was sold by a Dutch merchant in 1742 to August III of Poland at a fair in Leipzig. What happened before remains a mystery. The diamond is of an extraordinary quality and is considered the largest natural fancy green diamond ever found.

The Orlov diamond is a big bluish green diamond which is a part of the scepter of Queen Catherine the Great of Russia. It has 180 facets and is rose style cut.
