Natural fancy orange diamonds are completely natural and acquire their remarkable color from exposure to nitrogen during the formation process.
Orange diamonds with modifying colors like Brown or Yellow though more abundant, are still not very common.
True orange diamonds are truly rare, most of them being variants of yellow or brown shades. Nature has bestowed upon us a number of fancy color diamonds with golden amber & fiery autumn hues. The orange in such stones is however, just a minor stain or color highlight. There are many orangy but virtually no orange diamonds in the jewelry world.
In order to understand the difference between orange diamond and orangy, you should consider the manner in which a laboratory grades the diamonds. According to norms followed by labs, when the orange color within the stone is 25%-50% it’s called an orange diamond and when it’s 25% or less it graded as orangy.
Like other colored diamonds, the intensity of the orange diamond fluctuates from fancy light orange to fancy orange diamond & goes up to the coveted fancy intense orange diamond, fancy deep orange diamond and the beautiful fancy vivid orange diamond.
Collectors who own the vivid orange gemstone of the pumpkin or cantaloupe hue, know that they possess one of the world’s rarest diamond treasures.
The Gemological Institute of America Laboratory seldom grades a stone “fancy orange” or ‘vivid yellow orange” because of two main reasons.
Orange is a hybrid color obtained through a mix of the red and yellow. So it is normal to see strong modifiers in orange diamonds. Also, a diamond’s crystal lattice, composed of compactly connected carbon atoms, makes this gemstone extremely resistant to permeation by impurity atoms.
