This month of April, I would like to talk about the month's birthstone – Diamond. It is considered as one of the most expensive and rare gemstones out there. It is also the toughest mineral that can be found on Earth. It is mainly used for aesthetics – such as accessories and decoration, but can also be used for industrial applications such as cutters and drills.
With all that being said, have you ever wondered what makes it different to other gemstones out there? The 4C's of diamond, although not unique to a diamond, is what makes this stone shine more than other gems. It reflects light better than any other gemstones. The clearer it is, the better it will reflect light. The better it reflects light, the shinier it gets. Naturally, the 4 C's of Diamonds are the ones that are also used to price these precious stones. For more info, you should read Brilliance.com's own Infographic about the subject. It explains it in more detail, as well as how can it help you get a bargain when trying to acquire one of these amazing gemstones!
