Diamonds are believed to have first been mined in India approximately 4000 years ago along the banks of the Krishna, Penner, and Godavari rivers. India started trading diamonds as early as the 4th century BC, according to historians. Brazil became a significant source of diamonds in the 18th century. The first major diamond resource in South Africa was discovered in the late 1800s.
Diamonds are nowadays mined in various places of the world. Angola, Botswana, South Africa, Russia, and Canada are some of the most prominent sources. The name diamond comes from the Greek word 'adamas,' which means "invincible" or "indestructible." Diamonds are noted for their incredible hardness, scoring 10 on the Mohs scale. A diamond can only be scratched by another diamond. Diamonds are available in a variety of colors in addition to white. Yellow and brown are the most popular diamonds, while blue, green, orange, and red are the rarest.

Diamonds are available in a variety of hues. Diamonds in the normal color group span from colorless to light yellow to brown. Colorless diamonds are the most expensive and rarest of all of them. There are also 'fancy' diamonds that are less expensive and available in red, pink, yellow, purple, blue, and green. 'Champagne' and 'cognac' diamonds are terms used to describe brown and yellow diamonds. Even the slightest color shift can drastically influence a diamond's value.
The official standard color grading system for diamonds range from 'D' to 'Z'. Diamonds with a Z-K rating have noticeable color and are not very valuable. J-I are almost colorless, with a warm tone that can be detected. H and G are nearly colorless as well. Unless they are compared to a colorless stone, it is difficult to tell what hue these diamonds are. Although F and E appear colorless to the naked eye, an expert gemologist can identify minute amounts of color. D-graded diamonds are colorless, highly rare, and extremely precious.
