Diamond - April Stone of the Month

A new month brings a new Stone of the Month. The Stone of the Month for April is Diamond.
Diamonds have four major characteristics known as, “The four C’s, carat, color, clarity & cut. Diamond is derived from the Greek word meaning: proper, unbreakable and unalterable. It is thought to be discovered in India over 6,000 years ago. 

A small number of natural diamonds fall outside of the typical white-yellow-brown color range. They can be pink, blue, purple, red, orange or any color. When they are a pleasing shade they can be extremely valuable and are given the name “fancy” diamonds. 

With a hardness of ten on the Mohs Scale, diamond is the hardest natural substance. Diamonds are so hard that the only tool that can be used to cut a diamond must be made from another diamond.
