The word "diamond" derives from the Greek word "adamas," meaning unconquerable and indestructible. Diamond is said to protect the wearer from incoming arrows in battle and to be an antidote for poison. Ancient tales of its origin described diamond as possibly being the tears of the gods, perhaps created when a lightning bolt struck a rock,
or maybe being
a splinter from a falling star.
No matter what, diamond is a remarkable and a beautiful gemstone.
