Diamonds are intense, radiant, said by mystics to awaken higher visionary states. Diamonds are the hardest of all substances. Though they're often colorless, they can also be yellow, brown, blue, pink, green, orange or red. They have been made naturally over eons in the earth, from crystallized carbon. Although they are found worldwide, most come from Australia, Russia, South Africa, and Brazil. The diamond is April's birthstone, and for centuries they have been said to provide spiritual protection, as well as qualities such as faithfulness, purity, and enhancement of love.
