The Journey Begins…

Atoms

An atom is the smallest particle of a chemical element that can exist as that element

The Earth and all substances on it, whether gases, liquids, or solids, are made up of atoms. There are many types of atoms, each type is referred to as a chemical element. Most of the atoms on earth are linked: that is, they are bonded together. Each atom is composed of three smaller particles or ‘sub-atomic particles’ called protons, electrons, and neutrons. They are arranged in a specific way so that protons and neutrons are huddled together, in what is known as the ‘nucleus’, and are orbited by electrons in ‘shells’. The number of protons and electrons in an atom is always equal, and the number of neutrons generally follows suit. The number of protons dictates the type of atom, and this is known as an ‘Element’.

Diamond is the only gem formed from a single element – Carbon.
