RED DIAMOND PARCEL
These are natural stones from Africa enhanced.In the trade they are called red diamonds but they are brown to reddish stones. Natural bright red stones are very expensive. Argyl mines have a .81 clean red diamond for $1,000,000 so it gives you some idea of the rarity of them.

WHAT ARE COLORS ENHANCED DIAMONDS?
Color enhanced diamonds are natural diamonds that have undergone a coloring technique/procedure based on high energy particle technology.
IS THE COLOR PERMANENT?
The color of each diamond that we treat is permanent and stable under normal conditions of wear and care. Color enhanced diamonds can be treated as any other diamond except when there are processes involving extreme heat (572° F). When a ring is given for resizing, for example, the client should inform the jeweler that the diamond is color enhanced so that the proper precautions can be taken.
WHY COLOR A DIAMOND?
Natural color diamonds are so beautiful but yet so rare and therefore so expensive. With today's technology it is possible to take a colorless/off-color diamonds and permanently add colors to them.
CAN I GET MY COLOR ENHANCED DIAMOND CERTIFIED?
Yes the Gemological laboratories are now issuing diamond certifications for color enhanced diamonds.
WHAT ARE CLARITY ENHANCED DIAMONDS?
[NOTE WE DON’T STOCK CLARITY ENHANCED DIAMONDS.]
Clarity Enhanced diamonds are real natural diamonds. The principle of Clarity Enhancement is to make natural diamond imperfections invisible. Almost every diamond has minute imperfections and fissures. When light rays travel through a diamond the fissure reflects the light in such a way that it becomes visible. It is these fissures that are made invisible through enhancement. After the enhancement process the light rays are able to travel through the fissure instead of reflecting off of it, giving you a visually more perfect diamond.
A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond is perfectly transparent with no hue , or color. However, in reality almost no gem-sized natural diamonds are absolutely perfect. The color of a diamond may be affected by chemical impurities and/or structural defects in the crystal lattice. Depending on the hue and intensity of a diamond's coloration, a diamond's color can either detract from or enhance its value. For example, most white diamonds are discounted in price when more yellow hue is detectable, while intense pink or blue diamonds can be dramatically more valuable. Out of all colored diamonds,red diamonds are the rarest.
Diamonds occur in a variety of colors — steel gray, white, blue, yellow, orange, red, green, pink to purple, brown, and black, virtually in every color of the rainbow. Colored diamonds contain interstitial impurities or structural defects that cause the coloration, whilst pure diamonds are perfectly transparent and colorless. Diamonds are scientifically classed into two main types and several subtypes, according to the nature of impurities present and how these impurities affect light absorption:

Diamonds that rate toward the colorless end of the range are sometimes known as "high-color" diamonds, and those toward the other end, "low-color" diamonds. These terms refer to the relative desirability (as demonstrated by market prices) of color grades, not the intensity of the color itself.
