DIAMOND, the April Birthstone

Description




A diamond reflects all colors of the rainbow and Chakra system. Commonly clear (white) in color, they can also be found in blue, pink, yellow and black.



History


In the Middle Ages the diamond was spoken of as “the divine brilliance on earth.” Known in India as the “invincible stone” as it related to virtue and justice.

As the hardest of all stones, it has become irreplaceable in many areas of industry. Diamond mining is of the greatest economic and political importance and by comparison its significance of diamonds in jewelry fades into the background.

Diamonds sparkle with an internal fire all of its own and is one of the most sought after gems.

The word diamond comes from the Greek word “adamas” which means “invincible or unbreakable”.

Diamonds were originally found in India where they were traded as early as the 4th century and were coveted by royalty and the wealthy. In the 1700’s India's diamond supply began to decline. Brazil then became an important source followed by South Africa in the late 1860’s.

An anonymous 2nd century poet believed the diamond warded off “the evil eye” which was believed to cause sickness, poverty or death. Some even believed that the diamond had healing powers and thought of as an antidote to protect against the plague.

Today, the diamond engagement ring has become the universal symbol of love and marriage as well as the gift of choice for the 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries.
