Natural Form: the stories a diamond crystal can tell us.

Whereas a polished diamond owes its beauty to the fine-tuned skill of the cutter, the diamond in its rough state is nature’s own work of art. The natural form of a rough diamond is not only beautiful, but it reveals a story that extends back over three billion years. Join two of De Beers Institute of Diamonds tutors as they talk you through how to interpret the various crystal shapes and their idiosyncratic features, and what they reveal about the remarkable journey of the diamond, from stardust to the surface of the Earth.

Following the presentation, there will also be a hands-on session, offering attendees the opportunity to observe and discuss a curated selection of natural rough diamonds with the team.
