Diamonds Add Sparkle to April BirthdaysApril 12, 2011
Diamond. The mere mention of the word fills the mind with a multitude of concepts and images. Diamond is a mineral, a natural crystalline substance, the transparent form of pure carbon. Diamond is something superb, the peerless “king of gems” that glitters, dazzles, and symbolizes purity and strength.
Diamond is indomitable, the hardest surface known. Diamond is exotic, formed in Earth’s interior and shot to the surface by extraordinary volcanoes. A diamond is likely the oldest thing you will ever own, probably 3 billion years in age, fully two thirds the age of the Earth. And for those lucky to be born in April, the Diamond is also your birthstone.
Diamonds symbolize wealth, durability, status, and peerless quality. Across time and cultures, diamond has also been associated with invulnerability, lightning, magic, healing, and protection. A Diamond is Forever. Forget the cake, come frost yourself with diamonds to celebrate your birthday!
