Are Diamonds Really Rare?
When you walk into a diamond jewelry store and see all the diamonds in all of the various settings that are for
sale, it is difficult to realize that diamonds are indeed rare.
Most people don't even stop to consider how that diamond came to be sitting in that jeweler's case! There is
quite a bit of work that is done before a diamond is ready to sell to the general public! See Brilliant Cut
For every one million diamonds that are mined, only one will be found that is a quality one caret diamond. In
order to find a two caret diamond, about five million diamonds must be mined. More than two hundred tons of ore
must be mined to find one small diamond, and even then, more than 80% of the diamonds that are mined are only good
for industrial use, such as diamond drill bits.
So, the next time you visit your local diamond jewelry store,
ask to see the one carat diamonds. You should look at this diamond with new appreciation knowing that it truly is
one in a million!
