    A colored diamond is an astonishing anomaly; only one in a few hundred thousand diamonds might exhibit a shade of blue—from pale sky to deep violet. Rare confluences of natural phenomena—including the presence of traces of boron, nitrogen, or another chemical element during the diamonds’ formations millions of years ago—have yielded these stones in a full spectrum of colors: red, yellow, green, purple, orange, and blue. Although not as flashy as its white counterparts, a fancy colored diamond, with its vivid sparkle, is an equally alluring piece of natural history.
