April's birthstone is remarkably simple in composition, yet stunning in its unique
ability to reflect and refract light into vivid flashes of brilliant color.  The ancient
Hindus called the Diamond "Vajra," meaning lightening, both because of the
sparks of light thrown off by this gem as well as its invincible strength.  The
Diamond is harder than any other substance on earth.

Diamonds have been revered throughout history.  Used to embellish such items as
crowns, swords and emblems as well as jewelry, they've even been part of national
holidays.   Queen Victoria declared the celebration of her 50th year of reign a
"Diamond Jubilee."  Diamonds have also been credited for having certain
medicinal properties.  During the middle ages, these gemstones were thought to
heal illness, but only if the ailing person took the Diamond into bed to warm it up
first!

Formed deep within the earth where there is intense heat and pressure, Diamonds
are simply crystallized carbon.  Volcanic activity of centuries ago brought these
gemstones to the earth's surface, where they are found either within volcanic rock
formations or washed out into rivers.  India is thought to be the first river-bed
source of Diamond mining, but today these gemstones are found primarily in
Australia, the Soviet Union, and Africa.

No more notable it its uncut state than a plain pebble upon the beach, the true
beauty of the Diamond was not revealed until the 16th century, when gemstone
cutting and polishing techniques were perfected.  Prior to this time, it was
considered taboo to modify the original state of a Diamond.  Today, the value and
appeal of this stone depends largely upon how skillfully it is cut and faceted.

A gift of a Diamond is symbolic of everlasting love.  There is no more convincing a
promise of an enduring relationship than the brilliant gemstone that has endured in
people's hearts throughout the ages.
