Gem diamonds were first found in streambeds in Brazil and India Diamonds are an element of carbon that is produced by the pressurizing of limestone Diamonds are the hardest naturally occurring substances on earth and it is the most popular of all precious stones Diamonds are sought after and admired because of their strength and beauty Good quality diamonds are readily available and this easy access has added to their popularity Because they are high in quantity the standardization of their pricing and marketing activity was needed Diamonds are colorless so before anyone figured out how to exploit their true beauty there was really no demand for diamonds An unpolished uncut rough diamond is not very appealing So before the 1800s they did not play a big role in the gem trade The wealthy people of this period were in to sapphires rubies and emeralds Gems that are appealing to the eye as soon as they are pulled out of the ground The 16 facet Mazarin cut was created in the 17th century but they were so many problems with this diamond cutting tool that is was not widely used at first These problems were not really repaired until the late 1800s The strength of the diamond is one its most important features also makes it the most difficult for the jewelers to work with Since diamonds were not in high demand no one seem to preoccupy with searching for them The lack of their availability kept the demand low because no one really knew about their beauty as a precious gem If there was no demand for these colorless gems then there was no supply Part of the reason they were not readily available was because diamonds were only found in India and in very small amounts in Brazil in 1670 From India it was difficult to trade diamonds Trade routes were always difficult when they consisted of sea travel
