The diamond is the April gemstone.

Did you know that diamonds are the hardest natural substance on the planet?

The only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond.

While diamonds are an expression of love for couples, they are also the birthstone for individuals who have an April birthday.

A birthstones website said that wearing diamonds not only make people happier, but also more successful at work and helps them to build inner strength. The ancients also believed that diamonds have healing powers.

Historical records dating back to 400B.C. mention the diamond.  The ancients believed that diamonds were created by either lightening bolts or tears of the gods.

Diamonds are found in many areas including the state of Arkansas.  They can also be found in a rainbow of colors.

Diamonds are formed at very high pressures which is where the phrase a diamond in the rough originated.
