Measurement of the remnant pressure sustained by a mineral inclusion within a diamond can allow calculation of the source pressure and temperature conditions of the diamond formation. While Raman spectroscopy (point analyses and 2D mapping) has been the most commonly used non-destructive method for measuring this remnant pressure, two new techniques (quantitative birefringence analysis and in situ X-ray diffraction) have recently been developed. In this paper we apply all of these techniques to… CONTINUE READING
