One of the most interesting variations of the gem is the Chameleon. Chameleon diamonds will quite literally change color depending on how they are treated. According to the book, these diamonds are typically a greenish hue, however when heated to more than 200 degrees Celsius or simply left in the dark for about 24 hours they will change to a more yellow or orange shade. The book also goes into detail regarding cuts, value, how to understand a Diamond Grading Chart and much more. If you are a fan of diamonds, are in the market to buy jewelry featuring the gem or are simply in need of a great new coffee table book, this is a great purchase.

I therefore encourage anyone interested in obtaining knowledge and an appreciation of fancy color diamonds to read it.
