The birthstone for the month of April is Diamond. The hardest substance known to man. In fact the word diamond comes from the Greek word adamas, which means unbreakable. The first diamond was discovered in India during the 9th century B.C. India was the worlds only source for diamonds until the year 1725 when diamonds were first discovered in Brazil. Since then diamond deposits have been found in South Africa, Australia, Russia, Canada and even the United States of America just to name a few of the nations that produce diamonds for the global market. Despite the fact that diamonds seem to be found all over the world very few are actually worthy of being considered gem quality.
