Well for eyes not to worry! Although not FDA approved, Chawan says the lenses are safe and comfortable, sitting 6 to 9mm away from the eye. You’ll also get your choice of diamonds set in yellow or white gold. So the next time you see someone with an extra twinkle in their eye, do a double take because their eyes just might be sparkling with diamonds.

  • In ancient times, diamonds were worn as tumbled stones. They were treasured for their beauty as a gemstone.
    It can amplify one’s thoughts, strengths, and weaknesses.

Coming back to types, Natural Diamonds can be categorized into 4 types, depending on the impurity levels.

  • 1a – It is the most common form of Diamonds and contains about 0.3% of Nitrogen. It absorbs blue light and so are generally light yellow or brown in color.
  • 1b – They are very rare in nature, about 0.1% of total. In them the nitrogen atoms occur isolated throughout the carbon lattice. In general have a more intense color than Type Ia diamonds, absorbing green as well as blue light. They can appear yellow, orange, green or brown in color.
  • 2a – They contain very negligible amount of impurities and are considered purest form of Diamonds. These are generaly colorless.
  • 2b – They occour very rare and may contain even lower concentrations of nitrogen than 2a. But they contain boron impurities at the atomic level, because of which they are generaly bluish in color. They constitute about 0.1 percent of total

Other than natural Diamonds, diamonds can be synthesized too. Two of the methods used are High Pressure High Temperature Synthesis using graphite and another growth technique called Chemical Vapour Deposition(CVD).

So thats all we had on types of Diamonds, we will be back with next post in this series soon.
