Why Diamonds Glitter?

Diamonds Glitter because Diamonds behave like prisms. When light passes through a cut diamond, it is bent into different wavelengths, and the colors separate and then are reflected back out. Since a diamond’s shape is different from a prism’s,  the colors don’t appear in straight rows, but more like shards  of color as in a kaleidoscope. As a diamond moves, the shards of colors change like in a kaleidoscope, making the diamond glitter.
