Those are cool looking.  Just out of curiosity, how do they compare, price-wise to normal diamonds?

Have you checked out the leibish website? Droooooool!!! I’m a sucker for anything sparkly and colourful! I would love to see a white diamond in real life, I wonder how well it refracts, I know of ‘milky’ clear diamonds (strong fluorescence) which unfortunately mask the ability to refract… Are white diamonds just clear diamonds with super duper strong fluorescence that gives a milky appearance?

Very cool! And I bet they’re easier to keep clean!

Didn’t know there was such a Thing. They just look cloudy to me.

@dewingedpixie: Oh really? yellow and brown diamonds also have nitrogen in them so it must be a sliding scale of ‘impurity’ content then… OK I’m intrigued!!

Really cool looking!  I’m a huge fan of moonstone and opals, I love the translucent quality of these stones.

@dewingedpixie:  OK I get it now! The nitrogen in the white diamonds exists as inclusions which give the milky or cloudy appearance whereas in the yellows, browns, blues etc the impurity (eg nitrogen) exists within the diamond crystal itself which gives the colour.

Looks like these guys don’t give brilliant refraction but as you say, would probably look more like an opal. Very cool! Probably a good investment 😉

They are called “frozen spit” diamonds in the diamond industry, but I also think they are pretty cool. I do thinnk they are considered all to be I3 though, due to the cloudiness of them.
