Breakthrough discovery identifies the secret ingredient to pink diamonds

Pink diamonds are rare among Earth’s precious stones, and the exact recipe to their formation has puzzled scientists. Now, a ground-breaking discovery from Western Australia’s Argyle has identified a crucial event that needs to take place for pink diamonds to form and appear near Earth's surface, and it may make them easier to find in the future.

We know diamonds need immense heat and pressure to form, but there are all kinds of different diamonds out there. Colored diamonds are the rarest, representing about 0.01 percent – one in 10,000 – of diamonds mined across the planet. Pink, blue, green, violet, orange, and red are all very rare, while yellow and brown are a bit more common.

The study is published in Nature Communications.

Supercontinent Nuna (Columbia) or Nena. Nena was when Australia was smashed against Canada.

Names float around. This is a pretty good summary as of 2012. Decent chunk of people were big on Nuna, but Columbia is making a comeback as the name. Maybe.
