Natural violet diamonds are extremely rare and belong to the purple diamond family.
The color appears as a combination of blue diamonds and purple diamonds, although it is a color in its own right, and comes in different hues and intensity. Many of the world’s violet diamonds originate from the Argyle Mine in Kimberley, Western Australia.
Pure violet with no secondary hue almost never occurs in nature, and when it does, these diamonds appear only in small sizes. Even though this is very rare, it is not considered as rare as fancy red diamonds and fancy blue diamonds. The violet colored diamonds found in nature usually appear with gray or blue as a secondary hue, and are also very beautiful although not always as expensive.
