Ten precious stones that are rarer than diamonds

Diamonds are one of the most popular gemstones. But there are gemstones that are far rarer than diamonds, including the following gemstones:

1-Painite

In 2005, Guinness World Records was named the world’s rarest gemstone. The stone was first discovered in Myanmar by British mineralogist Arthur Paine in the 1950s. Today, a new pinnacle mine has been discovered in Myanmar, so it is not as rare as in the past. However, this stone is still one of the rarest gemstones in the world.

2- Alexandrite

 Alexandrite is a wonderful jewel because it creates different colors in different lights. This jewel is green-blue in sunlight and turns purple in the light of incandescent lamps. If you can see different colors by turning a jewel in your hand, it is called pleocroque. Alexandrite is highly pleurochic. Alexandrite belongs to the chrysoberyl family, and emeralds belong to the same family. Due to the rare composition of minerals containing titanium, iron and chromium, the property of color change in this precious stone and its rarity due to its rare composition.

3- Tanzanite

Tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer than diamonds. This gemstone is only found in the foothills of Kilimanjaro. Like alexandrite, tanzanite has beautiful color changes that are created to change the crystal arrangement and lighting. This discoloration is due to the presence of vanadium ions.

4- Benitoite

This precious blue stone, as its name suggests, can only be found at the source of the San Benito River in San Benito, Canti, California. One of the interesting features of this rock is its fluorescence glow under ultraviolet light. The remarkable thing about Bentoite is that although it was discovered in the early twentieth century and its chemical composition has been known for decades, the origin of its color and fluorescence remains unknown.

5- Poudretteite

The first signs of powdery mildew were found in the mid-1960s in the mountains of St. Hellar in Quebec. But by 1987 it had not been officially recognized as a new mineral. It was finally fully reviewed in 2003. According to sources, few humans have found an example of this mineral, and many have not even heard of it.

6- Grandidierite

This green-blue mineral exists only in Madagascar. Like Alexandrite and Tanzanite, this mineral is multicolored and has the ability to transmit blue, green, and white colors.

7- Red diamonds

Diamonds come in a variety of colors in nature, including yellow, brown, colorless, blue, green, black, pink, orange, purple, and red, respectively. The largest red diamond on earth, the Mosaicfarms, weighs 5.11 carats (about 1 gram).

8- Musgr

avite

The mineral was first discovered in 1967 in the Masgario region of southern Australia but is not found in small quantities in Greenland, Madagascar and the South. The discovery of a sample of this mineral that is large enough to cut pure and large has not been reported until 1993. And by 2005, only eight samples of this mineral had been obtained.

9-

Jeremejevite

Germioite was first discovered in Siberia at the end of the 19th century, with high-quality jewelry specimens (of the right size and purity) being found in the Namibia. The image below shows the largest carved germite with a weight of 60 carats (12 grams).

10- R

ed Beryl

Red beryl (red emerald or velvet emerald) was first studied in 1904. In terms of chemical composition, this substance is close to emerald and aquamarine, but less than both of these minerals. The red color of this mineral is due to the presence of Mn3 + ions. The mineral is found in limited parts of Utah and New Mexico and cannot be extracted economically. It is estimated that rubies of similar quality are 8,000 times more abundant than red diamonds. As a result, the price of Brillings is estimated at $ 10,000 per carat.
