Diamond Meaning – General Information.
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. It 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.
With a perfect structure, Diamond is referred to as the “king of gems” and also for its unique powers of light reflection and dispersion. It is the one and only “10” on the Mohs hardness scale. Composed of pure carbon, the foundational element of life, it is crystallized deep in the earth’s mantle under intense heat and pressure. Its name is derived from the Greek adamas, meaning unbreakable, or indomitable, and diaphanus, meaning transparent.
While quality Diamonds are carefully cut into gems and used in jewellery, lesser Diamonds are used in industrial applications, especially for cutting and polishing.
