Blue Diamond

Posted by Laura Greenshields on



Blue diamond is a form of diamond which has the basic properties of the gem, but also the exceptional property of a deep blue color. They are rendered blue by the inclusion of small quantities of boron in the crystalline lattice. Blue diamonds are categorized as fancy diamonds, and is considered a "color diamond", or a diamond that shows vibrant colors.





One of the first documented blue diamonds is the Hope Diamond, a 45.52 carat flashy deep grayish-blue, with the first known occurrence in Europe being in 1666 by French jewel entrepreneur Jean-Baptiste Tavernier, after which it was renamed the Tavernier Blue. It is now housed in the Smithsonian institute.
