For all those born in the month of April, your Birthstone is Diamond.
Diamond is the hardest natural substance and no naturally occurring material can cut or even scratch it. The Diamond has remarkable optical characteristics and mechanical properties, and these combined with well-organized marketing, have made the diamond such a popular gemstone. Diamond has an isometric crystallography. It is most common and popular in its clear variety, but also occurs in many other colours, called fancies, which are rarer and more expensive.
Diamond was used during ancient times as a talisman against cowardice and was recognized as a “stone to enhance invulnerability”. It rallies strength with age and maintains the energy to stimulate unity and love of oneself and others.
This gem is said to be one of the stones used on the breastplate of the high priest.
Intensity is a key word for diamond; it emanates more energy for its size than any other crystal. As an energy amplifier, it works well with any other stone, enhancing its power for healing. It is one of the few stones that never needs recharging. This mineral is known as the “King of Crystals,” it reflects all colours of the rainbow and chakra system. It is a stone of clarity, commitment and communication that enhances prosperity, love and spirituality.
Unsurpassed as a symbol of wealth for thousands of years, the Diamond is a stone of manifestation, attracting abundance. It is also a symbol of purity and is said to bond relationships, bringing love, constancy and clarity into a partnership. It is seen as a symbol of commitment and fidelity, and is the stone traditionally chosen for engagement rings.
It enhances creativity by stimulating inventiveness and imagination. It will bring clarity of mind and aid enlightenment. It reminds you of your soul’s aspirations and assists its’ spiritual evolution.
Diamond may be used to clarify and stimulate sight, to benefit the brain, as a metabolic balancing agent and has been used traditionally to counteract the effects of poisoning.
