What is a birthstone?

Gemstones are stunning, magnificent, and beautiful natural wonders. Crystals and gemstones come in wide varieties, ranging in hardness, luster, rarity, and purity. Civilizations throughout time have worked with gemstones in a multitude of ways, most popularly utilized as adornments like jewelry or armor. Anyone can use gemstones in this way or seek to harness their cosmic, celestial, or spiritual qualities.

However, in recent years, a new idea came forward: that of a “birth stone.” Birthstones are determined by the month one is born. Because of this, you can’t “choose a birth stone.” Some months do have a few different options, though. Birthstones were popularized by the jewelry industry in order to build business and increase the use and desire for specific gemstones. This aids in mass appeal and has grown to immense popularity.

“Birth stones” often have a higher value, as they are more coveted on a global level. This is because of their rarity, their beauty, their significance, or their mass appeal.

The history of the diamond

The oldest diamonds on Earth were formed over 3 billion years ago.

Diamonds were first popularized in India, where they were found by rivers and streams. However, diamonds exploded in popularity and have been unearthed in many regions worldwide. 

Since these early periods in time, diamonds have been traded worldwide. After they first made their way to Europe, they surged in diamond amongst the European elites.

Where are diamonds mined and found? What are the largest diamonds in the world?

In ancient times before people knew how diamonds were created, they were believed to be made through lightning or were tears of a divine spirit or God.

The largest diamond ever found was revealed in South Africa’s premiere mine in 1905. It was 3,106 carats and produced the Cullinan I Diamond, which is also known as the Great star of Africa. Both the Cullinan I diamond and Cullinan II diamond are a part of Great Britain’s crown jewels. The Cullinan II diamond is also known as the Lesser Star of Africa.

The first diamond engagement ring that has been given on record was from Archduke Maximillian of Austria. It was given to his betrothed in 1477, Mary of Burgundy.

Because diamonds are often used in engagements or marriages, they are also often associated with 60th and 75th wedding anniversaries.

In the present, modern day, Brazil has emerged as one of the main sources of new diamonds. Many diamonds have been mined and unearthed from many other areas of Earth. South Africa still unearths diamonds, too. Russia, too, has grown in the diamond industry, too. Other locations that diamonds have been found in recent years are Australia and Canada. People are actively looking for diamonds everywhere.

How are diamonds created?

Diamonds are created under extreme pressure and heat. They often are found more than 75 miles beneath the Earth’s surface. 

The diamond has a Mohs hardness scale rating of 10. It is so hard that the only thing that can scratch or scar it is another diamond. Remember, though, preserving diamond quality is important!

After formation, diamonds are then pushed upward through volcanic activity. They then reach the Earth’s surface or are harbored slightly below. Diamonds can be found in different places: glacial tilts, kimberlite pipes, rock, or even alluvial deposits. In mines, diamonds are still very rare, as the average yield is 1 part diamond to 1 million parts rock!

How do you clean or wash a diamond?

To wash a diamond, they can often be placed in an ultrasonic cleaner. However, be sure to consult a professional. If you are uncertain, you can still use warm water, light soap, and a lint-free cloth. It is advised to periodically clean your diamond and have professionals examine them. This will maintain their beauty and integrity over long periods in time.
