Doubravka Tamara. Diamonds. August 17th , 2017.
The word diamond is a derivation of the Greek word, "adamas", which means invincible. Diamond is known as the hardest material on earth and is mined deep under-ground. They've been discovered in India, South Africa, Ghana, Australia, Borneo, Siberia and a few isolated locations in North America. Today, South Africa is the world's largest exporter of these gemstones. Some of the most famous diamonds in the world are the Great Mogul, the Cullinen, the Jubilee, the Tiffany, the Sultan of Morocco, the Black Orloff, the Great Chrysanthemum, the Idols Eye, the Hope and the Kohinoor, or Mountain of Light.
Diamonds are shiny, colorless stones that make the eyes of the beholder sparkle in awe. Since time immemorial, they have been a girl's best friend. These gemstones have always been the ultimate treasure to possess by mankind. People spend hundreds, thousands, and even millions of dollars to own these treasures. If you have the money, you can buy the best of these sparkling stones. However, all that glitters is not gold, all that sparkles is not diamond. There are plenty of cheesy characters out there who try to pass on fake stones as the real deal. These thugs rob people of their hard-earned money. So, if you are planning to buy a real diamond for yourself or your loved one, it is important that you learn the difference between real and fake diamonds. This will help you get the right stone for the price you pay.
Yellow sapphire signifies knowledge, wisdom, virtue, fortune, justice, education, future, religion, philosophy, devotion, children, distant travel, spirituality, truthfulness, prosperity, and charity. It acts as a 'Guru'; as an instructor or a teacher that can influence our actions with the highest order and balance. The Guru guides action in the most harmonious and uplifting manner, and balances our inner and outer input while simultaneously performing and monitoring action.
Another twist to the Kohinoor tale is in the form of a curse upon all those who come in contact with it. The Shah of Persia died in a palace revolt trying to defend his treasures, including the Kohinoor. Most of the Indian empires that came into power suffered misfortune and misery, including Ranjit Singh, whose 8 descendants were unable to produce heirs and his entire royal line was eventually wiped out. The British overran the region with the support of Kharak Singh, but he himself died after one year of rule. After this Duleep Singh, the son of Ranjit Singh came into power. Subsequently he went into a war against the British, which he badly lost. According to the conditions of the peace treaty the Kohinoor was to be handed over to the British. Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth both wore the Kohinoor and neither of them fell prey to any misfortune. On the contrary, Queen Victoria's status improved on acquiring the diamond and on January 1, 1877 she became the Empress of India.
