The Diamond Anatomy


 The Diamond Anatomy : Diamond Education in Dallas Texas : About Diamonds

About one ton of rubble is dug to recover less than half a Carat of Diamond Rough, making the diamond a vary rare gem. Something as beautiful as a Diamond can be found in the most remote and deepest places on earth. It is a testament of strength, endurance and the ultimate symbol of undying love, no doubt. Each diamond is unique and each one reflects a story of its journey from the depths inside the earth into a treasured object of adornment. All diamonds share a certain feature that allows us to compare and differentiate them from one another. These are called the diamond 4Cs.
