Those born in April have the good fortune to have diamond as their birthstone. The word ‘diamond’ comes from the Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning unconquerable and indestructible, flawlessly describing a diamond’s durability.
But then there’s the fire, the scintillation, the beauty that spills from a diamond. As one wears a diamond, it comes alive with movement, shimmering and dazzling those nearby. Diamond also often make the wearer smile!
No pressure, no diamonds. ~Thomas Carlyle
Diamonds are formed with high temperature and under great pressure many miles below the earth’s surface. Diamonds are found in various locations around the world and in the United States in Arkansas, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. Diamonds have been around quite a while. In age, they range from under one billion to 3.3 billion years old.
