Diamonds, are not just a girls bestfriend...

Diamond is the traditional birthstone of April and holds the most significant meaning for our April babies, although those who use Diamond or wear it also reap its benefits.
It is thought to provide its wearer with better relationships and an increase in their inner strength.

Read on to find out more about this beautiful stone. 

3 Facts of Diamonds

  1. Diamonds are derived from the Greek word Adamas, meaning ‘invincible’.
  2. Diamonds come in a wide range of colours such as black, blue, green, pink, red, purple and yellow. This colour is dependent on the impurities that are present in the stone.
  3. Diamonds are the hardest gemstone and are only made of one element - Carbon.

The History of Diamonds

One of the main reasons that Diamond is not only highly valued but highly admired is due to the process of which it is formed.
Diamonds must be formed well below the earth’s surface and then forced upward until uncovered.
Before this process was truly outlined and understood, many ancient societies believed diamonds were lightening made real on earth - it is believed that Diamonds possess great healing powers due to this belief.
 

The Meaning of Diamonds

Diamond has always symbolised eternal love, a lasting love. The ancient Romans believed that Cupid’s arrows were tipped with diamonds.
Since they are the highest rating on Mohs Hardness Scale, with a score of ten, it is believed they will increase both the physical strength and inner strength of the wearer.
Known as the ‘Stone of Invincibility’ it is also said to bring courage, fortitude and victory to its wearer

 Uses and Purpose

Diamonds are conductors and amplifiers of energy, absorbing thoughts and feelings then radiating them outwards.
Whilst wearing or using diamonds, you should try to remain positive to project your empowering thoughts and to receive a positive reaction from others.
This does also mean that diamonds can increase negative energies as well as positive, while they never need re-charging - it is good to cleanse their energies now and then.
