A very lucky millionaire has only the chance to avail Blue Diamond. Aside from the fact that you need millions to purchase it, it is very rare to locate such kind. There is the very low supply of this kind of diamond so it means that it is precious and costly. More so, the process of turning white diamond into blue naturally takes several years. The bright blue color only appears when the diamond will have a chemical reaction with the element boron – a metalloid. After the reaction, the stone will be infused with the blue color. But this reaction does not occur always so it would be very hard to find natural diamond which is in color blue. And what it makes more expensive aide from the fact that it is very rare and has a long process is that this kind of diamond is only produced in one mining site in South Africa. That is why many diamond collectors would only settle for the white color- not too expensive compared to blue and is quite abundant (easy to find and locate).

Take note that this jewel is too precious and expensive that every thief would want to take it away from the owner. So, if you are one of the lucky owners of such kind of diamond, keep it always safe from the eyes of the burglar.
