Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend

Especially if you are lucky enough to have an April birthday. My daughter is one of those girls. She will be sweet 16 this month and just loves her birthstone. I thought I would add some information and fun facts about the beautiful precious stone for April's birthstone. The first diamonds were found in 800 BC in India. They are mainly found in these countries: the USA, Australia, Russia, Ghana, Brazil and Zaire. The word diamond comes from the Greek word "adamas". This means hardest metal. It is the hardest substance known. Diamonds can cut every known substance although cannot be cut or scratched itself. Diamonds are known for their Metaphysical properties such as clarity, abundance and balance. They are also known for their healing properties for brain diseases, pituitary glands. They are also associated with enhancing relationships and increasing inner strength. Just thought I would pass on a few facts and information on what is known to be "A girl's best friend". Have a fabulous day! Julie
