This is my first introduction to color diamonds that there incredibly popular how are they colored why do they have different colors yellow pink blue.

That are found in the minds where these diamonds are mined and so for example it's already in the debt -- -- and the actual -- -- lends itself to specific color -- let's look at some of them which he like that's here.
How that's a trick question.
For me personally.
I love this to carry it -- -- blue.
Diamond -- why is it -- so bar on is actually the chemical component and that.
Meeks the blue diamonds have their blue -- And -- on can be found in the mines were blue diamonds are -- So it's really really interesting because there is a very strong scientific component that's me about the setting because it's very unusual it's a flower of Smith army -- -- it's.

Because they're somehow -- less conspicuous.
Then something that's very big and very obvious.
So that you don't think this is conspicuous but I think it's amazing.
Is so it's pink how -- they get to be peak so what's that's about pink diamonds and -- diamonds for that matter is that.
There's -- -- chemical components so it's really due to a structural anomaly within the stone that happens in that earth.
