The Hardest Natural Substance! With a hardness of ten on the Mohs Scale, diamond is the hardest natural substance. Diamonds are so hard that the only tools that can be used to cut a diamond must be made from another diamond.

Which finger to wear diamond ring?

If you want to wear a Diamond Gemstone, you can wear a 0.5 to 1.5 carat Diamond. Diamond should have white color and less black spots in side. Make in gold or silver ring and wear it in the morning of any Friday during Shukla Paksha, wear it in the last or middle finger.

How can you tell if a diamond is real?

Try the 'Fog Test' (or 'Breath Test'): Since diamonds are efficient heat conductors, once you breathe on a real diamond the fog should disperse immediately. If the stone is a fake diamond the top will stay foggy for a few seconds longer. This test works best with a clean stone.

CLARITY



The clarity of a diamond is gauged using the differentiators below. With clarity, the types of diamond are gauged depending on the quantity and visibility of flaws.


FL - Completely Flawless.


IF (Internally Flawless) - The external flaws can be removed by further polishing.


VVS1 - VVS2 (Very Very Slightly Included) - Only an expert can detect flaws with a 10X microscope. By definition, if an expert can see a flaw from the top of the diamond, it is a VVS2. If the expert can only detect flaws while viewing the bottom of the stone, then it is a VVS1.


VVS1 clarity diamonds do not have any internal black marks. Then they also fall in the "No Dosham" or "No Black" category.

VS1 - VS2 (Very Slightly Included) - Flaws are visible with a 10X microscope, but it is not obvious (takes more than 10 seconds to identify the flaws).


SI1 - SI2 (Slightly Included) - Flaws are readily visible with a 10X microscope.


I1 - I3 (Included) - Flaws are eminently visible and can be found with the naked eye.


CARAT

Size is the most visible factor that determines the value of all diamond types. The price of the diamond rises exponentially depending on its size.


By definition, 1 carat is 200 milligram. Since most diamonds sold in the market weigh less than 1 carat, the carat is usually subdivided into "points". There are 100 points in a single carat. So, a diamond weighing 3/4 carat would be a "75 point diamond".


1 carat = 200 milligrams = 100 points.


Carat weight is not a factor that denotes diamond quality. While some of the other quality metrics have more bearing in the quality of specific types of diamonds, carat merely denotes the size of a diamond, by its weight. Diamonds of 0.50 - 0.75 carat are very popular for their size and value. Large diamonds are rarer to find in mines than small ones and thus large diamond types are much more valuable.
