Diamonds are best known for their beauty and use in jewelry. But diamonds do not start out so beautiful and elegantly shaped. Diamonds are created from carbon during extremely high temperatures and pressure. The process of forming diamonds is not quick. According to one site, it takes anywhere between one to three billion years for diamonds to form from carbon. Volcanoes play a big role in the formation of diamonds.
Diamonds are extremely hard substances. In fact, one site refers to it as the hardest material that we know of. This site also states that it can only be scratched by other diamonds. Approximately nine billion dollars’ worth of diamonds are mined every year. Almost 50% of all diamonds are mined from Central Africa and Southern Africa. However, diamonds can also be mined in Canada, Russia, Australia, Brazil, and India.
