A diamond is a transparent gem made out of pure carbon (like the graphite in a lead pencil) which has been crystallized in nature by tremendous heat and pressure. Diamonds are the hardest, most enduring and the most brilliant of all materials.
Many people equate hardness to toughness or resistance to breakage and so expect a diamond to be unbreakable. THIS IS NOT TRUE. A diamond's crystal structure, like the grain in wood, has "hard and soft" directions. A blow of sufficient force, in a very exact direction, can crack, chip, split or even shatter a diamond. A diamond ring should not be worn on hands that are doing rough work.
Because it is so hard, the diamond takes a high polish and therefore gives off more brilliant surface reflections than does any other gem. The diamond's brilliance comes from its internal/external reflections of light.
