    Diamond - Scientific Gemological Data


    Hardness & Toughness:

    Hardness 10 on Mohs scale
    Toughness Usually excellent, but vary according to the bonding of atoms in a Diamond. Diamonds are tougher in the directions where atoms are bonded tightly together, less tough where they're not so tightly bonded. The weakest directions are the ones where the atoms are farthest apart.
    Specific Gravity 3.52
    Refractive Index 2.42

    Stability:

    Environmental Factor Reaction
    Heat High heat can cause change in color or clarity, and can damage or destroy fracture and cavity-fillings
    Light Generally stable, but irradiated yellow or orange stones fade quickly; heat from bright light can cause oil to leak or dry out
    Chemicals Can harm fillings and remove oil; soldering flux containing boron, and firecoat made with boric acid powder, will etch the surface of even untreated stones
