Diamonds are very special gemstones for a number of reasons. They’re crystals formed from pure carbon, closely related to graphite though far more valuable. A diamond is the hardest substance on earth that occurs naturally, and they can be found in many regions around the world, in gravel that has been swept along by rivers, streams, glaciers and oceans, as well as in volcanic and sedimentary rock. The top 5 locations for diamonds are Russia, Botswana, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Australia and South Africa.
The diamond has enchanted people for centuries, beginning with the ancient Hindus in India as early as 400 B.C. As the original diamond miners, the Sanskrit words for it are “Vajra,” which means “thunderbolt,” and “id indrayudha,” which means “Indra’s weapon.” Thus the diamond is seen as a powerful weapon of Indra, a warrior god from Vedic scriptures, and the belief is that it was created by a thunderbolt. This is just the beginning of diamond mythology through the years that speaks of its power, romance, intrigue and magic. Diamonds were said to have healing powers, from drawing out toxins from the body to enhancing one’s balance and clarity.
Regardless of their magical properties, everyone can agree that diamonds are extremely beautiful!
