Diamonds: Why is the blue diamond so important to scientists who travel hundreds of kilometers underground?

Diamonds came into being billions of years ago and the selection of a few of them has dazzled our eyes.

Today, diamonds are considered a symbol of eternal love wealth and luxury.

In the past, they were considered to have healing properties & it was believed that the use of diamonds provided protection against enemies evils & even nightmares.

In India diamonds were associated with Vedic and later Hindu deities.

According to Christian tradition a diamond is an object through which you can break the idols of worldly deception  &obtain real and eternal light.

But perhaps the greatest interest in diamonds came from the ancient Greek poets, for whom diamonds were the tears of the gods or of the falling stars.

Surprisingly  truth about diamonds today is as astonishing as all these beliefs.


Diamonds are made from the element that is the basis of life itself namely carbon.

Extraordinarily strong they may again go through the same pressure that they have been in during the process of coming into being. However if the right combination of heat & oxygen is found diamonds will disappear again in the form of a wave of carbon dioxide.

In addition to its unusual luster diamond is the strongest material & also the best a thermal conductor with extremely low heat dissipation rate & also does not react with other chemicals ranging from ultraviolet to extreme. spectrum of infrared rays can pass through it. And it's 01 of the few materials that doesn't accept electrons.

Diamonds are made from the element that is the basis of life itself, namely carbon.

Diamonds are formed naturally in some places on Earth: in the depths of continental crayons or in meteor-affected areas.

They have historically come to the surface in an explosive way in a way that is very strange to look at & like a volcano whose roots are very deep in the planet.

Not all diamonds are transparent or slightly yellow or brown  as we generally think.

They are also colors and are called 'fantasy red, blue and green are the rarest colors & orange purple yellow yellow & green are the most common colors.

But once formed diamonds have the unique ability to store any of the minerals in their crystal line structure which enables scientists to find a specific sample of minerals in Earth crustas well as miles below the planet surface. Provide a glimpse of the situation.

And in that sense, the blue diamond is extraordinary.

Very interesting

Most diamonds are formed at a depth of about 150 km underground.

But blue diamonds are also found four times deeper in the lower layers of the earth.

They were discovered in 2018 & Avon Smith a geologist at the Gemological Institute of America who is the lead author of the research on these diamonds revealed that because these gems are so expensive they are intended for scientific research purposes. Therefore it becomes difficult to reach them.

Not only are they valuable but they are also very pure, because they do not contain any other material or small pieces of non diamond material around when they are being made.

These features provide more information to scientists.

It turns them into real time capsules and information containers that are almost impossible to find.

We can't go to the interior of the earth George Harlow a geologist and curator at the Gem and Mineral Rooms at the American Museum of History in New York told British news Rail. Diamonds are made there and usually wrap up whatever is on the bottom.

"It's like a space probe. Eventually some of them reach the surface of the earth so that we can do research on them.

Any example of the signal they gave us?

Blue diamond a mystery

Blue diamonds have long been a mystery because it is not known why they are so beautiful.

Eventually it was discovered that they contained traces of boron, a metallic chemical element that could penetrate its crystal lattice structure during its diamond formation.

But once the mystery was uncovered, another mystery unfolded.

If blue diamonds form in the earth's crust & the boron crust is concentrated in them then where did the boron come from?

The answer to this biochemical puzzle will tell us about the depths of our planet.

The Smith led research group hypothesized that the storm came from  ocean & moved toward the Earth's crust when one tectonic plate slipped beneath another. This process is called subduction.

By incorporating itself into the water rich minerals it managed to spread to the depths of the ocean floor even to the layers of the ocean floor.

Discovering traces of boron in diamonds produced at such a distance from the surface of the earth shows that unlike previously thought water -containing minerals travel much deeper, which is a very deep hydrological Indicates the possibility of cycling.

As Harlow says blue diamonds are not only beautiful & rare but also extremely interesting. They teach us a lot about our planet. "
