Diamonds are available in all sorts of colors.
The Rarest Diamond Colors White, Red, Pink, and Blue
Most Diamonds come with a yellow tint as they are mined. These are caused by the presence of nitrogen in the diamond.
OF course the more a diamond is free from such impurities the more expensive it will be.
The Color of a Diamond is graded along a scale which starts from D and goes all the way to Z in a descending order of color hence quality.
Diamonds which are graded as D are more whiter hence more expensive than diamonds
The Diamond Color is of exceptional importance when determining the quality and Price of the Stone.
Fluorescence is the quality of a diamond to give of light when exposed to ultra-violet radiation
