Science:

Mined Diamond Gemstones Manufactured Diamond Gemstones
Where do they come from? Mined from igneous rock inAustralia,Canada,Russia,South Africa, and other countries Made in scientific labs in theUnited StatesandRussia
Color Colorless, yellow, brown, gray, blue, pink, black, green, purple Yellow, colorless, blue, pink, black
Transparency Transparent Transparent
Luster Brilliant (very shiny) Brilliant (very shiny)
Crystal Shape Octahedron Octahedron
Hardness 10 10
Made of Carbon atoms Carbon atoms
Renewable? No Yes
Amount of time needed to produce 600 million – 3 billion years 3-5 days
Equipment needed Large trucks, tunneling machines, explosives, miners Machines, seed crystals, electrical energy, scientists
Environmental impact Requires energy to run drilling machines; about 250 tons of rock collected and broken apart per diamond gemstone Requires energy to run manufacturing machines
Cost Much more expensive than manufactured diamonds Much less expensive than mined diamonds

Look at the table above and answer the following questions.

1. Do you think a geologist would consider a manufactured diamond to be a “real” diamond? Why or why not?

2. Would a geologist consider a manufactured diamond to be a mineral? Why or why not?

3. Are rocks and minerals renewable or non-renewable?

You’ve decided to buy a large one-carat diamond.  Regarding this decision answer the following questions.

4. Which type of diamond – manufactured or mined – would you buy?

5. Support your answer to 4 with evidence from the in class activity.

6. Identify your trade-offs of your decision. (Remember, trade-offs are what you decide you’ll accept, even if it’s not all you want, to get the things you want)
