Diamond Gemstones

When it comes to diamonds, the world cannot get enough. From describing it as the 'forever' stone to 'girl's best friend,' diamonds have a wide fanbase. As the hardest material in the world that cannot be damaged by anything else, it often stands as a symbol of eternal love. This conception, combined with Archduke Maximillian of Austria's choice to fashion an engagement ring out of diamond, made it the world's favorite engagement stone. 


The growing love for diamonds paved the way for experimentation to produce them in labs. Since the 1950s, diamonds have been successfully created in labs for use in jewelry, machinery, and everything in between. There has been enough competition among diamond enthusiasts trying to establish the superiority of mined diamonds over cultured ones. 


Ever since the growing realization that April gemstone mining has ethical and social implications in many regions, people have been exclusively choosing the lab-grown kind. For an untrained eye, both types of diamonds look the same. Apart from better clarity and options for customization in cultured diamonds, there is no particular way to distinguish it from a mined one. 

The Origin of Diamonds

The formation of diamonds is an interesting story to share. In fact, it makes an inspirational tale and is an ample reason why diamonds are romanticized so much. Millions of years ago, the dead flora and fauna of the earth got buried deep under the crust. As extreme heat and pressure acted on these materials, the matter turned into the purest form of carbon that slowly crystallized to form diamonds. All these reactions took place over 100 miles below the earth's surface, meaning that the formed diamonds were not nearly as accessible as you might think. 


The diamonds buried deep down were brought up thanks to the volcanic activity many areas saw. Through volcanic pipes, river banks, ocean floors, and other such openings in the earth's crust, the diamonds made their way up in such a way that they could be mined fast.,


Today, diamond is mined across the world in Africa, Australia, Canada, Russia, and so on, but the first record of diamonds do not come from any of these sites. Centuries ago, India was the only country that produced diamonds. Having found diamonds around the 4th Century BC, these stones were mined and traded through the Silk Route. The availability of diamonds is one of the many reasons that made explorers like Vasco da Gama set out for India. 


The discovery of the Kimberley mine in South Africa was another key point in the history of the diamond trade because it allowed for the commercial mining of precious stones. With time, the demand for diamonds and the trends in the market changed enough to make synthetic diamonds more common and preferred among the masses.  

The Healing Powers of Diamond

Ever since the discovery of diamonds, they have been used for purposes other than ornaments. The healing powers of the gemstone are widely known. It is said to bolster and rejuvenate the energy centers in the user's body. Many cultures consider diamonds as heart unifies. That is, they are used to heal and invigorate the health of a user. This was done by drinking the water in which a diamond was soaked overnight. 


The reputation of diamonds as miracle stones also came from the fact that people believed in their ability to keep chronic stomach related issues at bay. Memory loss was another threat that diamonds could protect you from. More than that, the vibrations produced by this precious stone are said to lend a positive aura to an individual, making them extremely healthy. Wearing a diamond to bed is said to protect you from nightmares and depression and also prevent rapid mood changes. 


According to lore, diamonds have the power even to overpower the effect of poison. It purifies the body's systems, detoxifies them, and restores the body to a healthy state. If you are in need of building some stamina and treating allergies or chronic conditions, diamonds can do that as well. A properly cut diamond with no inclusions is said to benefit the brain, easing vertigo or dizziness if you are prone to them.  


Colored diamonds have their special powers. For instance, green colored ones are said to come in handy when someone is giving birth. In some cultures, green diamonds symbolize motherhood. The pink diamond is integral in enhancing creative expression, and blue diamonds allow a person to care for themselves better and boost their willpower. Depending on the April birthstone color, each of them has a unique power, regardless of how rare these stones are to come by naturally.
