Diamonds

The term diamond derives from the ancient Greek adamas, which means indestructible. Diamonds are, in fact, the hardest and purest substance on earth. They are resistant to damage by heat or scratching, and as a rule, can only be cut or polished by another diamond.

The brilliance and shine of diamonds is a result of their high density which makes light pass through them more slowly, dispersing into the colours of the rainbow. If diamonds are cut properly they produce more brilliance than any other gemstone on the planet.
