HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUUUUUUUU! If you’re reading this, you’re very likely celebrating your birthday this month. If you are, feel free to forward the text below (we’ll tell you when) to all the people who love you, hopefully they’ll get a clue. 

The facts:

Adopted from the Greek work adamas, meaning ‘invincible’, diamonds come in a wide range of colors such as black, blue, green, pink, red, purple, orange and yellow. The color is dependent upon the type of impurities that are present in the stone. For instance, yellow stones have minuscule traces of nitrogen, while blue ones contain boron.

Ancient theories touting the magical powers of diamonds were prevalent: some thought lightning bolts formed diamonds, while other theories asserted that diamonds were the tears of god.During the Middle Ages, diamonds were thought to hold healing powers and to cure ailments stemming from the pituitary gland and brain. By heating the crystal and taking it to bed, it was thought to draw out the harmful toxins that were crippling the body.

It was also believed that diamonds could have an effect on an individual’s balance and clarity and could boost their energy when combined with other crystals like amethyst.
