Diamond - What exactly is it? Diamond is the hardest gemstone on earth and is made up of one simple component, Carbon. Diamonds are the hardest substance on earth and 58 times harder than anything else in nature known to man.
Where can Diamonds be found? Diamonds are found all around the world, but mainly in Africa and South America. In more modern times, diamonds are even mined in the mid-west USA, even though mines are not currently operating.
How are Diamonds made? Diamonds are made underground, typically 100 feet below the surface with high amounts of pressure and temperature. Atoms are bonded typically in same direction and BAM! - raw diamonds are made. However, diamonds are not the prettiest when they come out of the ground. They usually look like unattractive ice cubes until they are cut and polished into the sparkly diamonds we love and cherish today.
