DIAMONDC - Native Element
|Stone Of Invincibility
Diamonds were formed at depths of 150 - 200 miles (320 Kms)
below the Earth's surface up to 3.3 billion years ago at
temperatures of between 900º and 1,300º C and under great pressure.
Kimberlite also formed under similar conditions and was forced upwards through diamond bearing rocks erupting on the surface and forming the diamond 'pipe' Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks known as kimberlites and lamproites.
Diamond is a symbol of love and fidelity and was offered as a pledge of love or friendship. The Diamond is considered by many to be the
“King of Gems”. Used as a talisman, diamond is said to render one invincible. It is a stone that brings good fortune to the owner.
