Earth and Galaxy – Diamonds Deposit
What are natural Diamonds? What are natural diamonds? What are mining diamonds? Where do diamonds occur?
In nature (natural diamonds, natural Diamonds) diamonds occur in 3 places:
Primary mining is mining e.g. Mir Diamond Mine Russia = primary mining 525 meters deep, diameter of 1,200 meters
Secondary mining is the extraction from seabed and marine mining e.g. Namibia
Diamond blocks on other planets
= Galaxy and interstellar gas clouds e.g. on ice planets like Neptune and Uranus
Diamonds are formed not only in the Earth’s mantle but also in other places in the solar system, for example on icy planets such as Neptune and Uranus. There, chemical reactions occur under high pressure, resulting in a dense liquid mixture of water, methane and ammonia, during which carbon is released and diamonds are formed. In 2017, the theory of the formation of diamonds in icy planets was confirmed by experiments for the first time.
Mines diamonds from mining
What is a mine diamond? How are mining diamonds created? Does it really take millions of years for diamonds to form in mines?
Mining diamond = A diamond formed and mined from the earth by geological pressure and extreme temperatures deep within the earth.
Formed 150-250 km below the earth BEFORE 1.5 to 3.3 billion years ago
BUT: faster process
Also in nature it did NOT take millions of years for a diamond to grow, but the formation process is much faster like Lab Grown Diamonds. The mine diamonds have merely lain in the earth in the “dirt” for so long.
Where is the romance and emotionality? We find it at least as attractive with Lab Grown Diamonds to have an innovative high-tech product that has made technology and research possible and is chemically, physically and optically the same.
- is chemically, physically and optically the same (crystallized carbon, cubic atomic lattice structure)
- more environmentally friendly & ethical
- zikra 70% cheaper
In which countries are mines diamonds? Where on earth are there mines diamonds?
57% Africa, 31% Russia & 10% Canada
Miners: De Beers, Alrosa & Rio Tinto control 72% of the market (volume & value)
Only 5% of diamonds have gemstone quality.
Mining causes holes, mineral waste, huge energy and water consumption.
Octahedron mining rough diamonds are federated from deep within the earth.
Overexploitation of nature and resources. Dangerous and often poorly paid jobs. Origin? Blood diamonds? War funding?
Mine crystals typically form in rounded octahedral shapes, caused by conditions deep within the Earth. They are brought to the surface by volcanic eruptions that form kimberlite pipes. The typical crystal shape of a mine diamond is an octahedron. Similar to two pyramids that are connected at the bottom. Diamond growth takes place on the eight different crystal faces.
Lab Grown Diamonds – Cultured Diamonds – Lab Diamonds
Why does Lab Grown Diamonds exist? How is it possible that real diamonds are grown in the laboratory? How are Lab Grown Diamonds bred? What are the types of Lab Grown Diamonds? Are there different lab diamonds? What processes are used to produce Lab Grown Diamonds? What are HPHT diamonds? What are CVD diamonds?
Technical progress makes it possible that today real diamonds can be grown in the laboratory. This even in the best gemstone quality. amazing quality and large sizes.
Cheaper, top quality, eco-friendly and ethical these are the advantages of Lab Grown Diamonds.
In both methods of breeding Lab Grown Diamonds, one has looked where and how there are diamonds in nature. Exactly these conditions in nature are imitated for breeding, i.e. imitated. This can result in the same imperfections as in nature with regard to color, purity, etc.
Bedingungen in der Natur werden imitiert:
HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) -> Erde
CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) -> Galaxy, interstellare Gaswolken, Eisplaneten wie Neptun und Uranus
- Top quality
- environmentally friendly
