Diamonds forms under high temperature and pressure conditions that exist only within a specific depth range (about 100 miles) beneath the earth’s surface. Diamonds might be just another mineral, fortunately, though, this special combination of chemical composition, crystal structure, and formation process gives diamonds the qualities that make them extraordinary.

Diamonds are the hardest material on earth: 58 times harder than anything else in nature. So hard that you can only scratch diamonds with diamonds.

Diamonds in the normal color range are colorless through light yellow and are described using the industry’s D-to-Z color-grading scale. Fancy color diamonds, on the other hand, are yellow and brown diamonds that exhibit color beyond the Z range, or diamonds that exhibit any other color face-up. These rare specimens come in every color of the spectrum, including, most importantly, blue, green, pink, and red.

RUBY

Ruby can command the highest per-carat price of any coloUred FINE GEMstoneS. This makes ruby one of the most important gems in the colored stone market.

Ruby is the most valuable variety of the corundum mineral species, which also includes sapphire. In its purest form, the mineral corundum is colorless. Trace elements that become part of the mineral’s crystal structure cause variations in its color. Chromium is the trace element that causes ruby’s red, which ranges from an orangy red to a purplish red. The strength of ruby’s red depends on how much chromium is present—the more chromium, the stronger the red color.

EMERALD

Emerald’s lush green has soothed souls and excited imaginations since antiquity

The most desirable emerald colors are bluish green to pure green, with vivid color saturation. Gem experts differ on the degree of green that makes one stone an emerald and another stone a less-expensive green beryl.

Because its density is lower, a one-carat emerald will appear larger in size than a one-carat diamond. Due to the crystal shape emeralds are commonly cut as rectangular step cuts called emerald cuts.

SAPPHIRE

Most people who think of sapphire picture the color blue. But there is so much more to it than we know

The name “sapphire” can also apply to any corundum that’s not ruby, another corundum variety.

Besides blue sapphire and ruby, the corundum family also includes so-called “fancy sapphires.” They come in violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and intermediate hues. Some stones exhibit the phenomenon known as color change, most often going from blue in daylight or fluorescent lighting to purple under incandescent light. Sapphires can even be gray, black, or brown.

SPINEL

Singly refractive and often very transparent, red spinel rivals ruby’s color but it costs much less.

Until recently, spinel was an underappreciated gem with little consumer recognition. Increasing demand for ruby alternatives rekindled appreciation for spinel’s rich red color and history. The most valued spinel colors are bright red, cobalt blue, and vivid pink and orange. Pale lavender is more affordable.

Spinel was recently added as an August birthstone, sharing this month with peridot and sardonyx. It has long been mistaken for ruby by emperors and monarchs. Many of the famous “rubies” of history were actually spinels.
