The word diamond is derived from the Greek — Adamantos and the Latin — Adamantum, from which the English word ‘adamant’ is born. This name refers to the durability and hardness of the stone. Diamonds are the hardest of all gemstones, being ranked number 1 on the Mohs scale. This is 10x harder than Corundum which is ranked 2 on the Mohs scale.
In Ancient Greek mythology diamonds are referred to frequently not as ornaments but as weapons of magical strength. For example Medusa is reported to have been decapitate with an ‘adamant sickle’. Similarly in Roman myths Cupid’s potent arrows were tipped with diamonds
