Name:
From Greek "adamas", 'invincible'. First known use by Manlius (A.D. 16) and Pliny (A.D. 100).
Diamond is the hardest natural substance known. It is formed deep in the mantle and is only brought to the surface via kimberlite pipes, lamprophyres, eclogites and other rocks that originate deep within the mantle. It is also found in alluvial deposits, along with quartz, corundum, zircon and other minerals, derived from such rocks, and in certain meteorites.

The formation processes of the variety carbonado are unclear.

The coexistence of diamond and carbonate minerals in mantle eclogites is explained by the reaction: dolomite + 2(coesite) -> <- diopside + 2(diamond) + 2O2 (Luth, 1993).

Geological EnvironmentHide

Geological Setting:
Deep mantle-derived rocks such as kimberlites, lamprophyres, and others. With decreasing pressure, the diamonds dissolve back into the rock. To occur and survive in a metastable state at the surface they must arrive from depth quickly and very often crystals show dissolution features because the transport to the surface is not quick enough.
Since diamond is extremely hard, it survives in alluvia.

Varieties of DiamondHide

BortA black variety of Diamond.
Diamond material unsuitable for gems because of its shape, size, or
color and because of flaws or inclusions. It also occurs in finely
crystalline aggregates and is usually crushed into finer material.
CarbonadoA massive, opaque, gray, brown, or black variety of diamond used as an abrasive and in rock drills.
Nano-Polycrystalline DiamondNano-Polycrystalline Diamond (or NPD) is a completely transparent, polycrystalline synthetic consisting of randomly oriented, very tightly bonded nanoscale-sized diamond crystallites.
Stewartite (of Sutton)A magnetic, ferrouginous variety of Diamond (bort) [Clark, 1993 - "Hey's Mineral Index"].
Originally reported from Kimberley pipe, Kimberley, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.
framesite A variety of black bort from South Africa showing minute brilliant points possibly due to included diamonds.

Fluorescence of DiamondHide

Some - blue, also phosphorescent

Other InformationHide

Electrical:
Triboelectric
Thermal Behaviour:
Greatest thermal conductivity known. A sizeable stone held in the hand feels cold, hence the slang name "ice".
Health Risks:
No information on health risks for this material has been entered into the database. You should always treat mineral specimens with care.
Industrial Uses:
Cutting and grinding due to extreme hardness. Used for the windows on the Venera spacecraft to photograph Venus' surface.
