The History and Beliefs Surrounding the Diamond

As told through the Encarta, Sanskrit texts dating back before 400 B.C. found that people associated significant value with crystals and diamonds. There is also significant research dating back to 1330 showing diamond cutting in Venice, Italy. The diamond trading business flourished towards the end of the 15th century with the opening of the Eastern trade routes.

Ancient theories touting the magical powers of diamonds were prevalent: some thought lightning bolts formed diamonds, while other theories suggested that diamonds were the tears of the gods.

The Healing Powers of Diamonds

During the Middle Ages, diamonds were thought to hold healing powers and to cure ailments stemming from the pituitary gland and brain. By heating the gem and sleeping with it in bed, it was thought to draw out the harmful toxins that were crippling the body.

It was also believed that diamonds could have an effect on an individual’s balance and clarity and could boost their energy when combined with other crystals like amethyst.

The diamond as the April birthstone has captured the hearts of many and is the most coveted gemstone of all time. Deemed as the “King of all Birthstones,” diamonds make the ideal choice for an April birthday gift.
