基於形成過程的本質,大部份粉紅色鑽石的淨度並不理想,而且也傾向擁有內部孿晶紋,影響鑽石的火彩及光澤。這顆重8.41卡拉的粉紅鑽擁有澄明的結晶體及內部無瑕的淨度,而且「高度透亮和非常明淨」,品質非凡。其份量、美麗的色澤及飽和的顏色都極其稀珍罕有。

粉紅鑽的歷史

「彩色鑽石是宇宙裡中的試金石,是上帝創造的一件小東西,可是人類不容易找得到它們是收藏品中的一個終極境界。」-R.Winston, 1986

這個粉紅色的故事始源於印度南部,亦就是出產世上最純淨、最有名的鑽石的地方。在十八世紀以前,這裡是世上唯一的鑽石產地,地位無可比擬。早於十七世紀初,一位名為讓·巴蒂斯特·塔維涅的法國商人和冒險家已經提到有關玫瑰鑽石的事宜。根據他的記述,這顆碩大的粉紅鑽原石重逾兩百卡拉,是他在第二次出訪東方時,戈爾康達皇朝大君於1642年讓他欣賞的一件寶物。此鑽石在距今四百年的印度已估計價值六十萬元盧比,其後被命名為「The Great Table」,至今依然是世上所知最具份量的粉紅鑽。此外,在塔維涅的著作《六下西洋》內亦有兩枚淡玫瑰色鑽石的繪圖,估計購入年份約1668年。

相信許多舉世有名的粉紅鑽如The Darya-i-Nur、Agra、Le Grand Condé、The Hortensia及Shah Jahaan都來自於印度南部位於戈爾康達附近的Kollur礦,全部都成為了當時皇帝大君皇冠上的絢爛珠寶;某些粉紅鑽則輾轉去到歐洲,給賣掉或用作贈予君主皇室的獻禮,其他許多著名的鑽石的產地則未能被證實。在近代歷史中,巴西和非洲的沖積物裡都曾發現一些較為大型的粉紅鑽。

事實上,粉紅鑽要是能超過一卡拉,已算得上是難求的珍寶。世界有名的「Williamson」粉紅鑽現為英國皇室珠寶,其原石是伊利沙伯公主(現為伊利沙伯女皇)於1947年11月20日大婚時收到的其中一份賀禮。這顆美鑽以礦主J.T. Williamson命名,亦是當今在南非所開採所得的粉紅鑽中最顯赫的一顆。在八十年代後期,地質學家於澳洲西北部發現令人鼓舞的土壤樣品,重燃了他們尋找鑽石礦的希望。他們花了十年的時間翻動慶伯利岩,終於發現了阿蓋爾礦,亦即是現今為全球供應約90%粉紅鑽的礦源。然而這個突破性的發現並沒有大大提高粉紅鑽的產量,因為每年所開採的二千萬卡拉原石中只有0.1%呈粉紅色,而能被切割成超過半卡拉的粉紅鑽就只一隻手掌的份量。大部份被評定為「粉紅色」的鑽石都不過約0.20卡拉,而且淨度甚低,其稀珍程度可見一斑。

現今世界上並沒有其他的大型的粉紅鑽石礦源,即使發現新的礦區也要花上只少十年時間才能獲得第一批礦產。近年來寶石鑑賞和收藏家都對此稀珍寶物的追捧熾熱,供不應求的情況早已出現。每當有重逾五卡拉的粉紅鑽在拍賣會上登場,定必成為該次拍賣的焦點所在,儘管價值不菲,仍有不少人爭相競投,拍場上如雷掌聲不絕。其實這份自然界的禮物又何需專家來可確認它的美呢?一瞥其如夢的顏色已叫人難以忘懷,這就是粉紅鑽的魔力。


神秘的粉紅色 缺陷中顯完美

許多人都知道鑽石由相連的碳元素組成,其結晶體因為不吸收光譜中的任何波長,因此鑽石看起來是白色,又或者應作無色。鑽石越純白,價格就越高,因為越純淨的鑽石越罕有,這是眾有周知的事實。可是或許只有一部份人明白,那些被視為「雜質」的元素,寶石學家稱之為「稀有元素」,正是令鑽石呈現絢爛色彩的原因之一。大自然以獨特食譜調配各種顏色,結合精確份量的食材,才能製作出最吸引的佳餚。

黃色和藍色鑽石就是分別由氮和硼元素調配而成的稀珍寶石,但鑽石裡的粉紅色卻令科學家至今都摸不著頭腦。現時推測天然粉紅鑽內有一些所謂的「缺陷中心」,如果這些中心達到一定的數量,鑽石就會產生另類的性質,例如吸收綠色的光波,令鑽石看起來呈粉紅色,可是當中究竟發生甚麼樣的變化,科學家到現在還沒有全面的解釋。

研究此問題的人員只能確定一點,就是當鑽石晶體有一個或更多的碳元素被置空,又或者被其他的元素所取代,就會形成此類「缺陷中心」。這是因為鑽石還在地殻內呈半固體狀態的時候,經歷了「塑性變形」的過程:碳粒子被施壓後整層平衡滑動偏移,這一層層移位的粒子看起來就像是針狀的內含物,或可被稱為粉紅色的孿晶紋。

這些紋理的多寡直接影響到顏色的強度,一般來說紋理越多,粉紅色也就越強。如此推論,天然的粉紅鑽都有一定程度的孿晶紋。有時候這些紋理可以十分明顯,某些內部的孿晶紋更會令鑽石看起來朦朦朧朧。粉紅鑽形成所需的極端環境及它們穿梭到地殻表面所經歷的旅程都對其淨度有一定影響。如果一顆粉紅鑽擁有均勻飽和的色彩,又不至於被孿晶紋影響其淨度,所需要取得的細膩平衡可一點都不容易,亦不由得人工操控。這顆重8.41卡拉的鮮彩紫粉紅色鑽石不但呈現明顯且甜美的粉紅色,而且擁有極高的內部無瑕淨度,罕有地完全沒有孿晶紋,色澤濃郁,堪稱完美的典範。


寶石學有時會有「crystals」一詞來形容擁有「高度透亮和非常明淨」外觀的頂級寶石,而以「crystals」一字形容這顆8.41卡拉的鮮彩紫粉紅色鑽石可謂最適合不過。它俱備份量、飽和色彩和內部無瑕的完美特質,世上罕見。
- Tom Moses, 美國GIA實驗室和研究高級副總裁

「由戴比爾斯開採的原石重逾18卡拉,從切割到打磨都一絲不苟,打造成這顆8.41卡拉的鮮彩紫粉紅色無瑕鑽石。人類憑藉創意追求理想,加上超卓的技術,成就了這份大自然所恩賜的非凡禮物。」

「粉紅色那嬌媚的色彩總叫人著迷:它是四月份春意盎然時片片飄落的櫻花;它是在純白指頭上輕輕融化的棉花糖;它是那個睡在羊毛氈裡的初生寶寶的臉頰;它是一個浮游在細碎康乃馨花瓣上的華麗的夢。」
