Natural color diamonds are very rare. The conditions must be just right for a diamond to possess any natural color at all. In most yellow diamonds, the nitrogen atoms have grouped themselves in very specific ways. The nitrogen arrangements absorb light in the blue region of the spectrum producing a yellow color. Yellow diamonds are found in most diamond mines around the world. The biggest sources are South Africa, Australia, Canada, and Russia.
Yellow diamonds can range from a pale champagne yellow to the extreme yellow of a blooming daffodil, and sometimes contain an orange, green or brown modifying color.
