Diamonds exhibit color thanks to the presence of an impurity. According to “The Fancy Color Diamond Book”, boron particles, which are trapped within the crystal lattice as the diamond begins to form, absorbs yellow light which in turn produces a diamond’s blue hue.

THE DARK SIDE OF THE BLUE DIAMOND

One of the most famous blue diamonds in the world is reportedly cursed. The Hope Diamond’s history dates back to at least four centuries, and is often said to have claimed the lives of its famous owners including King Louis XIV, Jean Baptiste-Tavernier and Marie Antoinette. A New York Times article from 1911 listed a few of the coincidentally tragic deaths of those who have owned the Hope Diamond, including suicides, murders and unfortunate ends. No one knows whether the deaths are just mere coincidences, but one thing’s for sure – the Hope Diamond has been displayed at Washington’s National Museum of Natural History since 1958.
