While green diamonds are exceptionally rare, they have often been outperformed by their red, blue, and pink counterparts, mainly because of color preference.

In the rough state, there are three different types of green diamonds. These include a crystal shaped stone with a shade of green similar to that in a swimming pool, a stone with a dark green outer layer, and a stone with a smooth yellowish-green color.
