Carbonado diamonds are simply more porous than other types of diamonds. They are found in geology different from other types of diamonds: there is no kimberlite or other 'diamond-indicator' mineral present.
There are several theories about how carbonado diamonds are formed, which you can read, below.
Black diamonds -- properly Carbonado, are real diamonds, with our without enhancements. You can read more about Carbonado, below.
Natural black diamonds are called Carbonado. From Wikipedia: "Carbonado diamonds are typically pea-sized or larger porous aggregates of many tiny black crystals." Read more, below.
Black diamonds are also called carbonado.
Carbonado is also known as black diamond.
Black diamonds -- carbonado -- are formed in ways that other diamonds are not formed. All diamonds are formed from carbon, but carbonado is more porous than other diamonds. The carbon isotope is low at -13 where most diamonds are rated as -12. Black diamonds are the 'toughest' form of diamond. Bottom line: we don't really know how carbonado is formed.
Given that all other properties are equal, except clarity: black diamonds -- carbonado -- are not clear, you'll always pay more for a (clear) 'yellow' diamond than for carbonado.

According to Wikipedia:"Carbonado diamonds are typically pea-sized or larger porous aggregates of many tiny black [carbon] crystals."This means that black diamonds are black because their base material is black: no other colour or lack of colour is involved.Read more about carbonado [black] diamonds, below.

Black diamonds, or carbonado, are less common than other coloured diamonds.According to Wikipedia:"Carbonado, commonly known as the 'Black Diamond', is a natural polycrystalline diamond found in alluvial deposits in the Central African Republic and Brazil. Its natural colour is black or dark grey, and it is more porous than other diamonds."
According to Wikipedia, below, black diamonds -- properly Carbonado -- are found ". . . in Central African Republic and Brazil."
All diamonds regardless of colour, have an equal hardness. Note, however, that carbonado, or black diamond, is more porous than white diamond.
