How are They Made?
Champagne Diamonds come from diamond mines in Australia at the Argyle Mine. 600 million carats of champagne diamonds have been harvested since it discovery in 1985.
Champagne diamonds are categorized into Type one and Type two diamonds. T They mine over 95% of the Champagne diamonds Type I diamonds have traces of Boron or Natural radiation. The amber color is caused by nitrogen in the gem. If traces of boron are found in the diamond there will be a bluish tint to it. If there is some nitrogen in the gen it will be a little green.
Type II champagne diamonds are fairly rare and have some pink red or brown to them. The Type II diamond is pressured during growth and this changes the lattice structure of the diamond.
Cinnamon Diamonds and Chocolate diamonds are also mined from this mine. they are basically the same thing except in different colors. They range in color intensity. The lightest is called C-1 up through the darkest being C-7.
Aborigines state there is a legend responsible for the formation of the of the diamonds. A Barramundi fish escaped through a fisherman's net. The colors that are mined from the earth are to be the colors of the fish!
