Part 2. Read the following passage and circle the answer which is most accurate according to the information given in the passage.

Diamonds

Some of the earliest diamonds known came from India. In the eighteenth century they were found in Brazil, and in 1886, huge deposits were found near Kimberley in South Africa. Though evidence of extensive diamond deposits has recently been found in Siberia, the continent of Africa still produces nearly all the world’s supply of these stones.
The most valuable diamonds were large, individual crystals of pure crystalline carbon. Less perfect forms, known as ‘boart’ and ‘carbonado’ are clusters of tiny crystals. Until diamonds are cut and polished, they do not sparkle like those you see on a ring  they just look like small, blue-grey stones.
In a rather crude form, the cutting and polishing of precious stones was an art known to the Ancient Egyptians, and in the Middle Ages it became widespread in north-west Europe. However, a revolutionary change in the methods of cutting and polishing was made in 1476 when Ludwig Van Berquen of Bruges in Belgium invented the use of a swiftly revolving wheel with its edge faced fine diamond powder. The name ‘boart’ is given to this fine powder as well as the natural crystalline material already mentioned. It is also given to badly flawed or broken diamond crystals, useless as jewels, that are broken into powder for grinding purposes, the so-called ‘industrial’ diamonds.
Diamond itself is the only material hard enough to cut and polish diamonds  though recently, high-intensity light beams called lasers have been developed which can bore holes in them. It may be necessary to spill or cleave the large stones before they are cut and polished. Every diamond has a natural line of cleavage, along which it may be split by a sharp bow with a cutting edge.
A fully cut ‘brilliant’ diamond has 58 facets, or faces, regularly arranged. For cutting and faceting, the stones are fixed into copper holders and held against a wheel, edged with a mixture of oil and fine diamond dust, which is revolved at about 2.500 revolutions a minute. Amsterdam and Antwerp in Holland and Belgium respectively, have been the centers of the diamond cutting and polishing industry for over seven centuries.
The jewel value of brilliant diamonds depends greatly on their color, or ‘water’ as it is called. The usual colors of diamonds are white, yellow, brown, green, or blue-white; the blue-white brilliants are the stones of the ‘finest water’ and so command the highest prices. During their formation, some diamonds absorb metallic oxides from surrounding rocks and take on their color. Thus black, red and even bright pink diamonds have occasionally been found.
The trade in diamonds is not only in the valuable gem stones but also in the industrial diamonds mentioned above. Zaire produces 70% of such stones. They are fixed into the rock drills used in mining and civil engineering, also for edging band saws for cutting and drilling glass and fine porcelain, and for dentists’ drill. They are used as bearings in watches and other finely balanced instruments. Perhaps you own some diamonds without knowing it in your wristwatch.
