Once upon a time, people would quote that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Yeah, we read this a lot like a quote on Facebook captions in 2010 but fast-forwarding to today, 2020, well, first of all, we are no longer part of an economy that has enabled us to actually purchase gems. The only gems we can afford right now is Cadbury Gems. So maybe diamonds are not our best friends at present and can we please declare them an ex? No? Okay.
1.) Scientists have discovered ways to create human ashes into a diamond. Yes, so if somebody misses a loved one who has passed away, they can have the ashes of the deceased transformed into a diamond.
2.) Most people assume that diamonds are mined underground only. Presently, that is how it happens, but in previous eras, diamonds were mined alongside rivers and coasts as well. Diamonds are older than dinosaurs.
3.) Well, you might know about this one. Diamonds are one of the hardest occurring elements in nature. A diamond is 58 times harder than any other naturally occurring element. Which also means, only a diamond can scratch a diamond.
4.) In 2007, an institution of astrophysics found a diamond in the galaxy. It is located 50 light-years away from Earth. It weighs 10 billion-trillion carat and is called Lucy. It is named after a Beatles' song.
5.) Not every diamond is colorless. Some diamonds come in natural colours such as yellow, blue, red, etc.
6.) In 20 the century, France passed a bill that said that only a king was allowed to wear a diamond (hello, douchebag alert). If anybody else was found wearing a diamond, they were screwed. It was punishable by law. It was after diamonds were discovered in South Africa and there were enough for the rich to share then things started changing. Well, our forefathers were indeed a messed up lot.
7.) The reasons why most desi's prefer to buy gold over diamond is because a diamond loses 50% weight while being cut and polished and the return on investment is obviously much lesser in comparison to gold.
8.) Scientists passed a theory that there are some dwarf stars in space which are made up of diamonds (pretty cool). What is cooler is the fact that the largest diamond weighs 2.7 thousand trillion.
9.) Diamonds are formed 100's of kilometers beneath the ground level. They are mined back to the earth's surface by deep digging.
10.) The Koh-I-Noor diamond is the world's most costliest diamond ever. Kohinoor is also known as Mountain of light. The second most costly diamond is The Cullinan, which cost around $2 billion.
11.) The Cullinan is also one of the world's biggest diamond ever found.
12.) Diamonds do not last forever. Diamonds degrade to graphite, but it the entire process takes between 1 billion and 3.3 billion years.
13.) Acids cannot dissolve diamonds, because diamond carbon atoms are too tightly packed together.
14.) Red diamonds are the rarest diamonds in the world.
15.) Wurtzite boron nitride (chemical compound) is the hardest than a diamond.
