April Birthstone: Diamond

April babies, it’s finally time to talk about diamonds as your birthstone for this month! Diamonds are the only gemstone made of one single element which is carbon, and are 58 times harder than anything else found in nature. Diamonds have a high refractive index that allows them to be faceted in shallow cuts without compromising that beautiful “fire” we see. They are found in a variety of colors such as pink, blue and green to name a few, though not limited to just these hues. In 2004, scientists discovered a star approximately 50 light years away that is 10 billion trillion trillion carats large!!! The star was named Lucy, after the Beatles hit song "Lucy With Diamonds In The Sky". Be sure to check us out on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about diamonds and all their glory!
