Therapeutic Properties of Diamond

Diamond is said to be an amplifier. If the wearer is good, it amplifies their goodness. If the wearer is selfish, egotistical or evil, it will amplify those qualities as well.

To Westerners, Diamond engagement rings symbolize eternal love. (Remember those DeBeer commercials proclaiming diamonds are forever?) However, in India, the Vedic experts strongly believe that diamonds should never be given to a woman! They insist that diamond is cold and hard. Wearing the diamond will cause that cold hardness to be absorbed into the woman, making her cold and hard toward her husband and children. They also suggest that since diamond is an amplifier, no woman should wear more than 1 carat total weight of diamonds, and then, only in accent to other stones. The diamond's power (like in the case of other gemstones) is directly proportional to its size. Vedic's also say that any diamond showing hints or tinges of red will bring ruin upon the wearer and her/his household.

When I read this I remembered the stories surrounding Hope diamond, one of the largest diamonds in the world. It was believed to have been stolen from an Indian idol. It became part of the French crown jewels of Louis XIV. He gave it to his mistress, who died soon afterward. Later, it was given to Marie Antoinette (guillotined). In 1830, the Hope Diamond was purchased by Hope, a wealthy Englishman, who quickly fell upon hard times. Next it was owned by Colet who committed suicide. Later owners were Prince Ivan Kanitovitsky (was murdered), Sultan Abdul Hamed (was dethroned), and Simon Montharides (the entire family was killed in an accident). In 1907 an American woman purchased the gem. Soon after, her husband, son and daughter all died. The unlucky gem now resides in the Smithsonian.

If you want to hear more about large diamonds and bad luck, Mary, Queen of Scots had a large diamond she thought protected her from poisoning (she was beheaded).

On the positive side, Diamond increases personal clarity. It aligns the person with his/her higher purpose. Diamond also offers many healing properties. It is very useful for gem therapy.
