When we say cleavage of a diamond we refer to its ability to have smooth surfaces when it is broken down. The breakdown of diamond also occurs in certain definite directions. Cleavage there fore means dividing a diamond crystal into two or more pieces by splitting the stone through the cleavage direction also called its grain. Cleavage in chemical terms basically means the place where the layers of atoms are most weakly bound and can be broken most easily.

Not sure, but broke one (with pressure) and it might not be a diamond, but it cleaved hexagonal, I think.
