The Birthstone Of April - Beautiful Diamond
By far the most precious and popular of the birthstones, diamonds are formed deep within the earth where there is enough intense temperature and pressure for carbon to crystallize. Diamonds are the number one choice for engagement rings. The diamond also symbolizes the 10th and 60th years of marriage.

Diamonds are so gorgeous that ancient Greeks thought that they were splinters from stars that had fallen to earth. Some even said that there were tears of the Gods. The precise beginning of diamonds is a mystery to scientists and geologists.

India is thought of as having the first large source of diamond mining. Ancient Hindus called the diamond Vajra, which means lightening because of the sparks of light that it emits as well as its incredible durability. By far the most pleasing stone on the world, it is also known as the hardest substance in the globe.

Diamonds are found currently in Australia, Botswana, Russia, and South Africa.

For quite some time diamonds have been known for having certain curative properties. In the middle


 

ages gemstones were thought to cure illness if the patient took the diamond in their bed with them.

It is also said that Cupidís arrows were tipped with diamonds so it makes sense that over the years this beautiful stone has gotten a reputation as being the gift of love.

Diamonds used to be kept for only royalty and others who were allowed their symbolism of might and courage. In 1477 Archduke Maximillian of Austria gave a diamond ring to Mary of Burgundy and set a tradition of diamond engagement rings.

Interestingly enough early Egyptians thought that the vena amoris also known as the vein of love ran directly from the heart to the third finger on the left hand.

Giving a diamond for any purpose is sure to be appreciated.
