Lucky is the one who has the April birthday, for your birthstone is the DIAMOND. The world’s most popular gemstone, it is also the hardest naturally occurring substance found on earth! They are the only gemstone that rates a perfect 10 on the Mohs Hardness scale, which makes them a great choice for everyday wear.
Diamonds have long been steeped in legend and lore, going back to ancient times. In fact, the word “diamond” comes from the Greek word “adamas” which means unbreakable and indestructible. Those ancient Greek called them “shards of the stars,” believing that diamonds splintered from falling stars….which isn’t too far off, actually, as it’s been discovered that there are white dwarf stars in space that have a diamond core!
