What are the basic components of diamond crystals?

Pure diamonds are pure carbon, although most diamonds contain some impurities. The presence of nitrogen causes the diamonds to absorb blue light, making the stones appear yellow. Boron is responsible for the blue-grey colouration of some diamonds.  Hydrogen diamonds also appear blue, like 2-B diamonds, but are electrical insulators rather than semiconductors.

Following are the components of diamonds:
Carbon
Nitrogen
Boron
