Diamond type is a method of scientifically classifying diamonds, both grown and mined, by the level and type of their chemical impurities. Type ||A diamonds make up of 1-2% of all mined diamonds.
Type ||A diamonds are almost or entirely devoid of impurities. A colorless Pure Grown Diamond is classified as type ||A which is considered to be the purest form of diamond known to man.
Many large, famous diamonds, such as the Culling and Koh-i-Noor, are type ||A. A renowned example is the "Elizabeth Taylor Diamond", formerly known as the "Krupp Diamond", a 33.19 carat Type ||A diamond.
