Forged from the Heart of the Volcano

Diamonds are the hardest naturally occurring substance on the planet. Deposits of coal embedded deep in the soil, near the center of the Earth, are transformed through the intensity of pressure and heat of the magma found in the mantle layer. Ancient volcanic eruptions brought these deposits closer to the surface where they can be more easily mined and acquired in their host rocks. The difficulty of a diamond’s survival in the climb from the center of the world makes them a great and valuable splendor that is exceedingly rare to discover. In fact, there exists only a few dozen operational mines in the modern world, making their value as significant as ever.  Loose Diamonds Atlanta
