Green Diamonds: What Makes These Gemstones Go Gorgeously Green

Green-colored diamonds come in various shapes, hues, and clarity grades and are rare, like blue diamonds. Green diamonds have all the characteristics that make them one of the most desirable fancy-color diamonds. Natural diamonds develop green when they’re found underground beneath rocks containing radioactive materials like thorium and uranium. On decaying the radioactive materials, the gemstone emits radiation penetrating the diamond crystals. The carbon atoms or electrons get knocked whenever the radiation enters the diamond, and thus a uniform green color is formed. The displacement of carbon atoms and electrons deforms the diamond crystal lattice and alters how light reflects from the diamond. The green hue in diamonds is caused due to natural irritation or structural defects like the presence of hydrogen, nitrogen, nickel atoms, etc. 

Why are green diamonds so popular?

The gorgeous look and rare nature of green diamonds make them a perfect option for an engagement ring. Ladies who prefer unique gemstones will love Green Lab Grown Diamonds. Like fancy natural gemstones, green diamonds also come in different varieties and shades of green. Unlike other colored stones, the green diamond will rarely appear to be watered down or faded. This is why green diamonds are one of the rarest gemstones in the diamond market and stand out from the other colored stones. Most people are not aware of the fact that diamonds can also come in green color. This is because people think the green color is reserved solely for emeralds gemstone. However, this is not a fact; green emeralds and green diamonds are two different gemstones. Green Diamonds symbolize harmony, growth, fertility, nature, and freshness. 

Fancy natural green diamonds are earth-mined and the second rarest gemstone after fancy natural red diamonds and have been formed after exposure to atomic radiation. Green diamonds come in popular shapes such as emerald, Princess, radiant, pear, Asscher, heart, cushion, Marcus, Oval, and round. The most suggested shape for Green Diamond Ring is cushion and radiant since these two shapes help to best complement the color of the diamond. Other popular shapes for green diamonds are round, oval, and pear shape. Green diamonds are highly popular because they are incredibly rare, unique, and beautiful. 


The most sought-after color of diamonds is supposed to be green diamonds with a pure green hue. They also come into the category of the most expensive green-colored diamonds. Atomic radiation gives these diamonds a unique green color. Green diamonds' color intensity is faint, very light, fancy, fancy light, vivid, intense, fancy, deep, etc. The main reason why people adore the look of green-colored diamonds in jewelry pieces like rings, earrings, and pendants is that the green hue has a powerful emotional correspondence to safety and suggests endurance and stability.
