Diamond - Color, Facts, Power, Mythology, History And Myths

The most popular and esteemed stone all around the world is without a doubt “Diamond”. It is indeed amazing to see that a stone that is originated from jet black carbon emerges out to be so precious, shimmering, and well-liked. The cut, the clarity, the cleavage, the hardness, and the gleam, Diamond has everything in it, which has made it the most sought-after stones used in crafting precious jewellery.

According to the legends, once the God of Mines told all of his nobles and aristocrats to bring almost all the precious minerals and stones that are present in the world.  They all brought rubies, sapphires, emeralds, topaz, and many other with varying hardness and shades. The God of Mines took each one of the precious stone and crushed it and compounded all of these precious gems together. Then he cast a magical spell to form a new stone that can contain the properties of all the stones, and this is how Diamond was produced. It is as pure as the drop of dew, and when seen under the light it exhibits all the colours of those gems from which it was made. 

The Diamond is the symbol of purity and innocence, love and fidelity and is the most used gemstone in wedding rings and engagements rings. There will be no second thoughts if Diamond will be regarded as the “King of the Gemstones”.

Diamond is one of the very popular talismans used in motherhood. It is thought to be capable of driving away fears and protecting the wearer from negative thoughts and emotions. It is a strong amulet that safeguards against water, fire, snake, poison, and illnesses. It is said that a person must always keep Diamond with him to be protected from evil eyes.

Approximately 49% of the Diamond in the world is mined and extracted from South and central Africa. Although other significant sources of Diamond are found in India, Russia, Brazil, Australia and Canada. By volume, Russia is the highest Diamond producing country, and if one sees by value Botswana is the highest.

Healing Properties

The beneficial and healing properties of Diamond are:

  • Physical Healer

Diamond is regarded as a master healer for its capability to unite the mind and body. It is best used as a supporting and uplifting stone, intensifying the supremacy of other minerals when working on some particular issues, particularly where blockage and clogging of energy have resulted in a physical imbalance.

The Diamond is valuable in strengthening and purifying the functioning of the brain, anxiety and sensory organs. It is considered to give support in balancing both the hemispheres of the brain and is a great remedy for strokes, epilepsy, and ageing of the cells. It also restores the energy levels of the body. However, Diamond must be avoided in cases, like depressive maniacs, paranoid psychosis, and jealousy.

Furthermore, Diamonds have been used to alleviate indigestion, constipation, urine retention, more or less all the organs concerned in removing waste from the body.

  • Emotional Healer

           Diamonds do not work directly on the emotional body of the wearer, rather their intense energy can promote and strengthen the power of any emotional circumstances, from happiness to despair, but it should be worn with caution. It may also help the wearer when he is in the bad frame of mind. It is also used in a therapeutic manner to burn emotional issues and excess sensitivity. It keeps the wearer more aligned with the spirit.

  • Spiritual Healer

Those people who feel that they have lost their self-worth and identity and are unable to step into spirituality, they must use Diamond. It brings a sense of enlightenment and radiance and cleans the aura by installing energy in the wearer. It fills the emptiness of the wearer’s life with light and purity.

  • Heals and Balances Chakra

The high-frequency energy that Diamond carries within itself heals almost all the chakras especially the crown and the etheric chakras.

The top of a person’s heads is the position of the crown chakra. It is considered a gateway to the long-drawn-out and vast universe that lies beyond our bodies. It controls our thoughts and emotions so that we can express ourselves well in front of the outside world.  Crown chakra is the origin of our values and beliefs. When crown chakra remains in balance, all the other chakras in our body become balanced.

The etheric Chakras are located above the head and are connected to more enlightened and spiritual things. They set up a connection with the soul and represents true humility.

    I love my black diamond. It&#039;s a bit capeehr than the white or colored ones, but I like having something that is a bit different than the rest. Also, I am sure my now husband wouldn&#039;t have been able to actually give me a real diamond as we are both studying and therefore are permanently low on money.
