A Girl's Best Friend and More. The Diamond. Birthstone for April
Diamonds, the birthstone of April, are the most popular gemstones in the world. With their sparkling brilliance and timeless elegance, diamonds have been prized for centuries.
According to the AGS (The American Gem Society), diamonds are the hardest natural substance known to man. They are formed under intense heat and pressure deep within the earth's mantle. Diamonds are composed almost entirely of carbon, and their unique crystal structure gives them their hardness and brilliance.
But before this process was understood, many ancient civilizations believed that diamonds were lightning made real on Earth. Perhaps this is the reason that diamonds have often been associated with great healing powers. Old legends stated the diamond could cure brain disease, alleviate pituitary gland disorders, and draw toxins out from the blood.
Diamonds are found in many parts of the world, including Australia, Russia, Canada, and South Africa. The largest diamond ever found was the Cullinan Diamond, which was discovered in South Africa in 1905.
A 3,106-carat gem, the Cullinan Diamond was rough cut into nine major stones and 96 smaller brilliants.
