    Nature’s one of the most preeminent treasure troves has been the western Australian argyle mine for over 40 years. This pink diamond mine produced more colored diamonds than any other mine across the globe. That is why it has earned a sparkling reputation for its unparalleled cache of multiple pink diamonds.  Researchers have spent so many years unraveling the origin of astonishing gems of argyle. Scientists further think they may have pieced together the process, which was created around 1.3 billion years ago. On Tuesday, a paper published in Nature Communications said that the team posits the breakup of an early super continent, lifted by salmon-colored argyle stone from crushing depth towards the earth’s surface.  Argyle mine, which is in Australia, has covered the size of 94 football fields in the rocky Kimberley region of this country. One of the most wonderful things that happened between 1983 to 2020 was that it was no longer economically viable, and this pink diamond mine produced over 865 million Karats of rocky diamonds.  The most lavish diamonds of argyle are linked with the damage they underwent deep within the earth’s surface. A scientist said that the diamonds are being forced to twist and bend. He further stated that if those diamonds are twisted just a bit, it will turn some of them into pink, and it will become brown more upon more twisting.  

    Around 1.8 billion years ago, argyle’s diamonds were pink and brown. After that, when this continent collided, this area’s diamonds were becoming concealed in the mantle hundreds of kilometers below the earth’s surface.
