April’s birthstone is the diamond. Adopted from the greek word, “adamas” meaning “invincible”, diamonds were thought to hold healing powers and could cure ailments from the pituitary gland and brain. People with signs of illness were told to heat the diamond up and take it to bed so that it could draw out the harmful toxins that were crippling the body.
Even though we all know what a classic diamond looks like, the diamond can be found in a variety of colors such as yellow, blue, pink, black, purple, and orange. The color is dependent upon the type of impurities that are present in the stone; yellow diamonds have tiny traces of nitrogen, while blue ones contain boron.
The diamond as April’s birthstone has garnered the hearts of many and has been deemed as the “King of Birthstones”. The diamond holds significant meaning and is thought to provide the wearer with better relationships and an increase in inner strength. It also brings other benefits such as balance, clarity, abundance and is a symbol of eternal love.
