Further Your Diamond Knowledge
Diamonds are made up almost entirely of carbon. The stones are formed deep below the Earth's surface by tremendous heat and high pressure. Diamonds are carried to the surface by volcanic eruptions. We find diamonds in the volcanic rock known as kimberlite. Once mined, the brilliant stones will never grow back.
