Carbonado as it is called more commonly known as a “Black Diamond,” is a natural polycrystalline diamond found in various different alluvial deposits most commonly in the Central African Republic and Brazil. The carbonado or Black Diamond was originally first recognized as a form of polycrystalline diamond back in the early 1840s. It was discovered and then mined for in Brazil, South America. Since then it has been found elsewhere, in parts of Venezuela, even in Australia, and the Ubangi region of the Central African Republic, where it is most commonly known as “carbons”. There is a carbon called yakutite which may be related, is found in various Russia. Its natural color is black and dark grey, and it is more porous than most other diamonds.
