How do you identify raw diamonds?

Answer

You can identify raw diamonds by performing the scratch test. Since diamond is the hardest mineral, if you scratch it against the next hardest mineral, it will leave a scratch. The next hardest mineral, the one to be scratched in this test, is corundum. Corundum is also known as ruby or sapphire.
