Hardness 10 – Gemstone family-Diamond Diamonds are the hardest minerals on Earth, made purely of carbon. The name is from the Greek adamas – meaning “I take” or “I subdue” a reference to its superior hardness. It is reputed to endow the wearer with purity, love and joy. Traditionally the emblem of fearlessness, it is also symbolic of love. Found in many colours including colourless, yellow, pink, red, blue, brown, and black.
Natural fancy coloured diamonds are very rare, blue is one of the most desirable colours. The Hope Diamond, can be seen on display in the Smithsonian Museum, Washington, is one of the world's best examples. In recent years, methods of producing intensely coloured diamonds, including fancy blue, have been developed. The treatment, which only works with a small minority of diamonds, involves irradiating them to cause the colour change, usually followed by heat treatment to stabilise the colour.
