A diamond is a very hard, clear stone popular for jewelry and also used for industrial purposes. A diamond may be colorless but often have a yellowish, brownish, pinkish or bluish tint. About one-third of diamonds glow blue (or less often another color) when exposed to ultraviolet light.
The word Diamond comes from the Greek word adamas meaning “unbreakable” or “unchangeable”.
Diamonds are mined all over the world but most diamonds on the market come from Africa. There are some ethical issues associated with diamonds as some are mined using child labor and some are sold in order to fund wars and genocide. These are referred to as “blood diamonds”. Many people today seek out “ethical diamonds” or recycled diamonds to ensure that their diamonds are not associated with these unhealthy energies.
