Diamonds! A stone that everyone knows, but also doesn’t. Many people may not realize that diamonds were once chunks of carbon similar to charcoal. Due to earths internal processes, these lumps of carbon are exposed to extreme temperatures and through natural occurrences and volcanic eruptions they find their way to the earth’s surface. Diamonds are renowned for their immaculate hardness and their exquisite brilliance of fire and sparkle. Diamond is the birthstone of April and is derived from the Greek word ‘adamas’ which means invincible.
