The diamond’s claim to fame outshines every other gemstone. From ancient times, it’s been associated with strength and beauty. People have decorated themselves with diamonds in handcrafted and beaded jewelry, and used them for more spiritual purposes, for thousands of years.
The word “diamond” is derived from the Greek “adamas,”which means unconquered or invincible. Diamond is the hardest substance on earth, and is made of carbon–one of the primary elements necessary for life. They’re so hard that the only way they can be cut or polished is by using other diamonds!
