Diamond

The history of Diamonds in Brazil begins in the eighteenth century, when these gemstones began being exploited there (at the time, a Portuguese colony) and sold in Europe, fostered by the Portuguese. With the steady flow of Brazilian Diamonds to Europe, the Dutch merchants felt threatened and spread rumors that Brazilian gemstones were of poor quality. The Portuguese merchants then started sending the Brazilian Diamonds to India to sell them as Indian gemstones, until their true nationality and extremely high quality were finally recognized.

The stone represents the unconquerable, the indomitable. Since ancient times the Diamond has been cultivated as a symbol of eternal love and trust, with wizardly healing powers.
