An Easy Guide To How Diamonds are Formed

There is no denying that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Associated with royalty and riches, the diamond birthstone month is April. Let’s dive into understanding how diamonds are formed:

  • Conditions of intense heat and pressure cause carbon atoms to crystallise, forming diamonds, and probably why the Greek word for a diamond is “Adamas”, which means “invincible”.
  • These conditions happen 150-200km below the surface of the earth. Temperatures vary between 900-1,300 degrees Celsius, and the pressure is 50 000 times that of the atmosphere on the earth’s surface.
  • Magma, under these conditions, forms a pipe as it carves a path to the earth’s surface. These pipes are called ‘Kimberlites’, inspired by the town of Kimberley in South Africa.

Associated With a Diamond, the April Birthstone

Gemstones are linked to healing and therapeutic energy to the individuals wearing them. Whether you believe this is entirely your choice, but let’s explore other elements also associated with diamond and its birth month, April:

  • Birthstones can be grouped according to a traditional or modern meanings. Diamonds, however, are found on both lists as the April birthstone, and they are priced according to the four C’s: carat weight, colour, cut and clarity.
  • Due to the pressure during formation, diamonds are associated with strength and eternal love. Those born under the zodiac sign for April, Aries, are seen as strong and determined individuals and in ancient times they believed diamonds affected clarity and balance positively, raising the wearer’s energy.
  • Diamonds come in various colours, namely red, yellow, orange, green, blue, pink, purple, brown, violet, grey, black and the ever-popular white diamond. With this range, every April-born individual can have their pick of a diamond suitable to their taste.
