What is Diamond | Origins
| Mining & Distribution | Diamond Jewels
Real diamond crystals don't have entirely smooth faces. Trigons are triangular growth that reflect subtle changes in height on a diamond's face. The trigons shown here are slight indentations that were most likely produced by a natural picture of the crystal. Though, raised trigons, which point in the same direction as the crystal face, may also occur from etching, dissolution, or as part of the natural growth of the crystal.
