DIAMOND BIRTHSTONE

DIAMOND BIRTHSTONE

Happy Birthday to all who share this month; Diamond is your birthstone.
Diamond is my absolute favorite gemstone.  April birthdays are the lucky ones!  I am captivated by the brilliance and fire of diamonds; I love that each one has its own identity. Like our own fingerprints, no two are exactly alike.  Diamonds form under high temperatures and extreme pressure conditions 100 miles under the earth's surface.  They are also the only gemstone made of one single element: 99.95 carbon.  The remaining .5 contains one or more trace elements which influence the diamond's shape and color.

You've probably heard that only another diamond can scratch a diamond, and this is true. They are the hardest material on earth - 58 times harder than anything else in nature! The hardness of the stone makes it well-suited for everyday wear.  It's durable, resists scratching and retains a high polish.  These factors make diamonds the perfect choice for the jewelry you wear today, as well as your heirlooms of tomorrow.

If you've ever ogled a friend's gleaming diamond, you are most likely enjoying the spectacular display of light that flashes spectral colors, which is just one of the many features of this gemstone.  The brilliance, sparkle, intensity, and various imperfections (which is the stone's unique personality!) are also important to the rarity and value of each diamond. 

Diamonds are a fascinating and complicated gem; a "Stone of Invincibility" that has been believed to bring victory, superior strength, fortitude, and courage to its wearer.  I really like that diamEnjoy your birthstone! May it bring you all these qualities and more.onds are also said to hold great spiritual powers, enhance inner vision, stimulate creativity, imagination and open the mind to new possibilities.

THE TUCSON TANGO

February 22, 2020

Gemstones from around the world in their various forms are inspiring, but I found my true inspiration within the souls of the people I had the pleasure of spending time with. It was a magical trip of friendship, laughter, and passion, so when the music stopped and I packed up my dancing shoes, well, the Tucson withdrawal was real.
