Diamonds are formed under extreme conditions deep in the centre of the earth and take millions of years to create. The process is so lengthy, intense and unpredictable that inevitably certain formations occur inside the tight knot of hard crystals.
The clarity of a diamond is determined by its ability to refract and reflect light. If the stone contains numerous inclusions, these will block the reflection by absorbing the light.
It was secretly buried hundreds of kilometres below the earth’s crust for billions of years. And it took violent volcanic eruptions for it to emerge under the surface. Finally in 1964, the “616” diamond was discovered amidst the Kimberlite rocks. The world’s largest rough diamond resembling the size of an egg, the name “616” refers to its weight in carats (approximately 123 grams). Unfortunately, the various flaws, inclusions and low clarity made it unsuitable for grinding.
A spontaneous surprise is expressed in a fraction of a second. Her reaction is often followed by a state of confusion or joy. The intensity of the surprise is determined by how much her jaw drops open.
