Additional Gemstone InformationThe world's most popular gemstone, diamonds are prized precious gems treasured for their sparkling fire and rarity. The quality of diamonds is determined primarily by color, cut, clarity, and carat weight. Though most are colorless, extremely rare colored diamonds—like the world-famous Hope Diamond on exhibit at our National Museum of Natural History—are the most valuable substances known to man. Diamond is the birthstone for April.
