April Birthstone-Diamond

“The King of all precious gems and symbol of trust”—DIAMOND- the primary April birthstone, may be the most well known and hardest precious gemstone with a hardness level of 10.0.The word diamond derives from an ancient Greek word, “adamas”, meaning invincible.
The healing properties of the April birthstone are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to brain diseases, pituitary glands. The Diamond is also used to draw out toxins and therefore was used as a remedy for poison.Enhancing relationships and increasing inner strength Balance, clarity and abundance.
In sixteenth century England, uncut diamond crystals were set into “scribbling rings,” and the exposed points were used by lovers to etch romantic vows into window-panes. The ancient Greeks believed that the fire of a diamond reflected the flame of everlasting love. Archduke Maximilian of Austria apparently agreed — in 1477, he gave a diamond ring to his fiancee, Mary of Burgundy. And so began the tradition of presenting the diamond as a promise of marriage.From the stunning display of stones flashed by movie stars at awards ceremonies, to the modest engagement ring of a young bride, the diamond continues to enjoy great popularity among those of all status. Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor summed up this universal love of diamonds when she remarked, “I have never hated a man enough to give his diamonds back.
“At first diamonds were possessed only by the elite. In fact, in the 13th century, Louis IX of France established a law reserving them only for kings. But as more sophisticated methods of diamond mining and exporting evolved, diamonds became more plentiful and accessible to others. Nevertheless, this gem has always been the object of greed and desire, and history is rife with stories of diamond theft. The legend of diamond powder being an effective poisoning agent is said to have originated to discourage diamond smugglers from swallowing the gems.
The popular April Birthstone of the Diamond is found in the following countries:
Australia, Ghana, Zaire, Russia, USA and Brazil.
