Yellow Diamonds
 
Yellow Diamonds capture the suns rays like no other gemstone. The dramatic and brilliant glow of these diamonds makes them a red carpet favorite among celebrities, and as a result, they are the most widely known of colors.
 
 
Yellow Origin
The most notably large and intense yellow diamonds have been discovered primarily in South Africa. The Allnatt, a 101ct cushion shape fancy vivid yellow diamond is perhaps the most signifi cant yellow diamond in history, named after its original owner Major Allnatt in the 1950s. One of the largest polished diamonds in the world is the Incomparable, a 407ct internally flawless brownish yellow diamond.
 
 
Color Formation
The vast majority of all diamonds contain some nitrogen. In most yellow diamonds the nitrogen atoms have grouped themselves in very specific ways. This happens during and right after the diamond is formed. These nitrogen arrangements absorb light in the blue region of the spectrum producing a yellow color. Yellow diamonds can contain an orange, green or brown modifying color.
