Here's a few informative tidbits about diamods that you may not know.
1) Diamonds are made of carbon, just like the lead in your pencil. So technically, a diamond is just a really fancy graphite crystal. Maybe that's why they're so expensive?
2) The word "diamond" comes from the Greek word "adamas," which means invincible. But let's be real, diamonds are pretty easy to break if you hit them with a hammer. Not so invincible after all, are they?
3) Diamonds were first discovered in India over 2,500 years ago. Can you imagine being the person who stumbled upon a shiny rock and then realizing it was worth a fortune? Talk about a lucky day!
4) In ancient times, diamonds were believed to have healing powers and were used to cure ailments like fatigue and mental illness. If only we could wear diamonds to our next therapy session!
Happy Birthday all you April babies!!
