How To Invest In Pink Diamonds?

For eight years the devastating banking crisis of the United States, which has dragged in a dangerous vortex practically the whole world and has ensured that each citizen would develop a strong and growing distrust in the financial world , and especially in banks.

This is the reason why a growing number of investors are facing different investment methods, such as gold, silver and pink diamonds. These are luxury products, they are difficult to find, and therefore more stable and maintain their value, through purchase over time. These are the so-called safe havens; they buy value, especially in times of crisis, when they are the only safe investments to fall again.

Of course, investing in gold or pink diamonds is not the same one that will carry out the bank bonds. Here the terrain becomes more complex, full of traps and with many things you should know before you start in these sectors.

The pink diamonds have always fascinated humans for its beauty and rarity, and the distinguishing feature that give their owners. Owning a diamond means living in luxury, being part of the elite. But what about the investment? It is possible to make investments in pink diamonds, autonomously, choosing this option is not prudent unless advised by experts in the field, and ready to risk a lot, through credit institutions or trading platforms that offer this possibility.

History, origin and formation of pink diamonds

According to the story, the pink diamonds were originally recognized and mined in India; here they were found in alluvial deposits along the rivers Krishna and Godavari. The pink diamonds were used to adorn the religious icons; therefore, it is very likely that they were already known and considered valuable about 6,000 years ago.

A famous sacred text of India, written at the beginning of the third century, describes strength, regularity, and brilliance, the capacity of zero metals and a good refraction capacity as the desirable qualities of a diamond. The ancient Indian city of Golconda was for centuries until the mid-nineteenth century the main center of the production and sale of pink diamonds, so much so that its name became synonymous with wealth.

The pink diamonds arrived only later in our ancient Rome and India there are clear references about their use as engraving tools. The popularity of pink diamonds has increased considerably since the nineteenth century due to the increase in supply, the improvement of cutting and polishing techniques, and the growth of the global economy and also thanks to successful innovative advertising campaigns. Once the story is mentioned it is important to go figure out as you go to form this precious stone.

The production areas are, in fact, different from each other as more or less in width and capable of producing a more or less pure diamond, this depends on the type of soil formation and the part in question of the mantle. Pink diamonds originate in the mantle of the Earth, where there are conditions of high pressure necessary for their formation. It is believed that the pink diamonds found on the surface come from a depth that is between 150and 225 km.

The crystals are brought to the surface, embedded in a rock that contains both olivines called Kimberlite, volcanic eruption through ducts. This gives rise to the chimneys of the primary diamond deposits. Later, through erosion, the Kimberlite can crumble, releasing secondary diamond deposits, usually alluvial.

Very small pink diamonds, usually less than 0.3 mm in diameter, are found in many meteorites that fall on Earth. Some researchers believe that the impacts of large meteorites, which occurred millions of years ago, may have produced some (or many) of the pink diamonds found today, but there is no evidence to corroborate this hypothesis.

The carbon-14 method is not effective for dating the diamond, since it is limited to the carbon of biological origin. They are ineffective for this purpose, always due to the chemical purity of the diamond, also the geochronology techniques. Geologists, however, believe that most of the discovered pink diamonds, that is, those that form in the mantle and reached the surface, are formed between about 1 and 1.6 million years ago.
