Argata did you check the book "Love is in the Earth" by Melody? She has a very rich compendium of all minerals/rarity/uses via meditations et
cetera.... She's a world renound Master Crystologist. And my mom was also one of her first students i'm not an expert but I know my fair share of
The triangle is natural. I have some quartz with triangle markings. From what I recollect, the triangles are where the crystal grows outward. It's
been a long time since I've read about them so I'm not 100% about the growth part.
As for the diamond, it's a shame so much will be wasted to grinding, but I suppose they recover the dust and re-purpose it.
Rough Diamond. Diamond in the rough. When they form they grow like a crystal. They keep growing until the conditions for growth diminish. Then they
are slowly brought to the surface as you see it in the photograph.
The bigger they are the more value assigned to them. 5 million dollars is the value placed on this stone pre cut. But the owners know that they will
make a lot more from it by breaking it down into smaller pieces. A diamond cutter will determine the largest single most valuable piece that can be
removed from the stone and that will be worth a lot more than 5 million dollars when finished. Then the rest of the stone will be divided into their
largest pieces and so on down to the littlest leftover. They will multiply the rough value many times over by the time they are through.
If the cutter doesn't muck it up on the first cleave. Anyone who has seen the process knows that this is the first step in dividing the stone along
its chosen grain so as to preserve the value. If a diamond cutter gets it wrong and either cleaves it badly or (worst case) breaks it up...
I adjusted the contrast and brightness and I can distinctly see carved or embossed markings on the top of that diamond. also based on the color,and
reflectivity i can see that parts of the rock have been cut off.
I think that this is some kind of diamond artifact they they have tried to alter and disguise as raw diamond so that they can cut it and sell it as a
If this was an artifact they would have to turn it over to the state or someone to study it and they would lose out on the money they can make by
cutting it and selling it as a diamond.
