History Of Diamond
By Ken Charnly
Diamond history varies greatly depending on your source of documentation, as diamond history is as rich in myths and folklore as it is in physical facts and records. Diamond history is one filled with mythical stories, such as one where snakes guarded a land full of diamonds, and the history has fascinated people with the romance and beauty that surrounds our most precious gemstones; diamonds.

Early Diamond History:

Around 3,000 years ago, in the country of India, the first ever diamond history was recorded. If Diamonds"); had been found prior to this period of time, we have no written record of it Diamonds"); in this day and age were used for two main purposes, and is quite different from why we still love Diamonds"); today. Diamonds"); stood as a talisman in order to fend off evil spirits, and to provide protection during battles, and they were also valued because of their ability to reflect the light.

Dark Ages of Diamond History:

It is during the dark ages that the diamond history moved into having some sort of medical purpose. St Hildegarde was said to have written an anecdote to heal wounds and cure illnesses that instructed the sick to hold a diamond in their hand and make the sign of the cross. Some people in diamond history went as far as swallowing diamonds, hoping it would cure their illnesses magically.

Middle Ages of Diamond History:

It was during the middle ages that Diamonds"); began to gain popularity. It is this point in diamond history that many of the famous diamonds"); were discovered, including the Blue Hope, and the mountain of light, both found in India. In our current times, India remains the worlds finest polishers of diamonds.

The middle ages also saw a shift in diamond history- where previously Diamonds"); were valued based on their mythical powers, they began to be valued more for their overall worth. As more people learned of the incredible value of diamonds, mine owners


began circulating stories that diamonds"); were poisonous, to prevent the workers from swallowing diamonds"); as a means to smuggle them out of the mines undetected.

Also during this period of diamond history, people wanted Diamonds"); more than any other time period previously, mostly because they recognized their power and worth. India's diamond supply was dwindling and was unable to meet demands of diamond buyers. South Africa's find of Diamonds"); near the Orange River began the world's largest diamond rush of diamond history, and helped satisfy the demands of those wanting Diamonds"); for themselves.

More Recently:

Diamond history began to spread into eastern Australia sometime during the middle of the nineteenth century. During the late 1970's, Australia as a diamond producer became validated. Also in the late 1970's, 1979 to be exact, the Argyle pipe near Lake Argyle was discovered by geologists. Since that day, Argyle has become the absolute largest producer of Diamonds"); in all the world and throughout diamond history, and produces over one third of the diamond volume each year.
