Diamond Healing & Magic
Diamond Healing Powers
A strong diamond will empower the chakras of the wearer.
For centuries, Far Eastern tradition offers the advice that to tonify the heart centre (the heart chakra), gently place the diamond in pure spring water, and leave overnight to imbue the silver light of a Full Moon, and upon dawn, drink the magical elixir in small sips.
Within the most ancient Vedic traditions, it is taught that the vibrational resonance carried within the micro-molecular structures of pure diamonds have a powerful healing affect upon both the crown and heart chakras, and in this way both the brain and the heart of the wearer are strengthened, and as a result memory is improved.
Diamonds are frequently described throughout history as Miracle Stones, and the very day we purchased the first of our collection, The Pandora Diamond, a miracle occured - whilst excavating an ancient spring source we found a long lost sculpture...
Traditionally many other healing qualities and attributes are given to diamonds - offering protection from depression and bad dreams, reducing physical tiredness and to invigorate the wearer's metabolic functions. Other tradions describe the capacity of diamonds to reduce fever, clear diseases of the skin, and to fight infection.
At the time of child-birth, it is considered most auspicious and conducive for delivery to wear a ring set with a diamond, and in historic texts green diamonds are described as the symbol of motherhood, the Eternal Goddess.

From the earliest days of history, many traditions and cultures have revered the diamond for its qualities of offering courage, power, invincibility and strength to the wearer - the stone of a winner. Throughout the Lands of Mother Earth all Queens and Kings have sought these mighty treasures for their enhancing qualities of a magical, secret and powerel nature.
The mystery schools and esoteric traditions teach of the power of diamond to help keep the mind focussed and clear, to facilitate a higher level of abstract thinking and to protect against sorcery, by reflecting any negative energies back to the sender. The use of diamonds in magic is highly sophisticated and powerful, though this can be initiated by the wearer, simply by combining a pure intentional thought with the acknowledgement of the latent power within the diamond they either wear or carry.
For magical use, the diamond ideally should be worn or carried whilst touching the skin, enhancing and aligning the relationship of pure diamond energy to the wearers will. And in particular, the ancients offered the advice that the ideal placement should be on the left hand, or around the neckline.

Within the cut and facetted diamond resides the rainbow, the reflected and refracted colours of pure light, and thoughout time great poets and artists have been seduced by their sheer beauty. The Sufi mystic and poet Hafiz, from ancient Persia, described the magnificence thus - 'the rainblow is confined in it - forever'.

Diamond Legend, Folklore & Mythology
Budda taught the 'Diamond Sutra' - A teaching delivered to his disciples upon a mountainside in India, where he explained the true nature of reality, as a means of overcoming suffering. And this Sutra implied that the cessation of suffering, through pure understanding and perfect realisation, would be permanent - resulting in perfect inner peace. And the word diamond, from our western perspective derives from the Ancient Greek αδάμας, (Adamus) which also implies the following interpretations - proper, unalterable, unbreakable or tamed.
The Ancient alchemists taught the spiritual aspects of diamonds, when conjoined with the transformative aspects of both the inner world and the power to manifest change in the shared reality of this World. In alchemy the diamond is recognised and utilised for its ability to refract light, and thereby symbolising the soul transformation in our realisation of higher goals and attainments. Our journey of light will have clarity and power, vision and awareness. They also shared the wisdom that diamonds might be consumed or even melted if struck by a thunderbolt.
For students and adepts who practice the ancient art of Kabbala, there exists a transformative meditation called 'The Diamond Body', wherein the use of the mandala of the Tree of Life, realising its symbology and geometry as a method for personal empowerment and transformation.
Over the millenia many traditions and cultures attributed noble and powerful affects that were enhanced in both art and history - The Ancient Greeks recognised the beauty of diamonds, holding them to be 'the Tears of the Gods', whilst the Roman culture held diamonds to be stars, that Eros, 'The God of Love' placed at the tip of his arrows, whilst captivating the hearts of entwined lovers, and even today in Burma (Myanmar) many of the Buddha statues and stupas have diamonds as decorative and powerful offerings.
