How are diamonds created?
Diamonds are rare and therefore quite expensive. These gems are formed over a period of millions of years. The diamond is the hardest natural substance in the world. It also owes its name to this. Diamond comes from the Greek word Adamas and means ‘invincible and cannot be destroyed’. A diamond stands for everlasting fidelity, romance, mysticism, passion, enchantment and beauty. This meaning has to do with mythology. The arrowheads of Cupido were made of diamond and the ancient Greeks saw the burning love flame in the sparkle of a diamond.
