Extreme chemical variation in complex diamonds from George Creek, Colorado, a SIMS study of carbon isotope composition and nitrogen abundance
Diamonds from George Creek, Colorado, preserve complex intergrowth textures between two major growth generations: homogeneous diamond with yellow-buff cathodoluminescence (CL); and diamond with blue-green CL and local growth zonation. Secondary-ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) has revealed large variations in N concentration and C isotope composition within these diamonds. Even within single stones, N contents and δ13C values can vary from 0 to 750 ppm and 0 to -20‰ respectively. These variations...[Show more]
