Introduction to the Meaning and Uses of Diamond

A legend claims the God of Mines called his courtiers to bring together all the world’s known gems: Rubies, Sapphires, Emeralds, etc. etc., and he found them to be of all tints and colors and varying hardnesses. He took one of each and crushed them; he compounded them together, and declared, “Let this be something that will combine the beauty of all.” He spoke, and lo, the Diamond was born…pure as a dewdrop and invincible in hardness. Yet when its ray is resolved in the spectrum, it displays all the colors of the gems from which it was made. [Kunz, 325-326]

Though it is a gem of winter, the color of ice, Diamond is a crystal of Light; its high frequency energy is dispersed into flashing prisms of brilliant “fire” that typifies the sun. It is a spiritual stone, a symbol of perfection and illumination, activating the Crown and Etheric Chakras. It enhances inner vision and stimulates creativity, imagination, and ingenuity, opening the mind to the “new” and “possible.” Placed on the Third Eye, a Diamond encourages psychic development, and is a valuable tool for remote viewing, telepathic communication and clairvoyance. [Kunz, 325][Melody, 243] [Megemont, 78][Ahsian, 135-136]

In addition to its spiritual power, Diamond has an unconquerable hardness and has been known since antiquity as a “Stone of Invincibility,” bringing victory, superior strength, fortitude and courage to its wearer. It is associated with lightning and fearlessness, and for its properties of protection. It is a symbol of wealth and manifesting abundance in one’s life, an amplifier of energies, goals and intent, and is highly effective in magnifying the vibrations of other crystals for healing. It is particularly beneficial set in gold and worn on the left arm. [Kunz, 70-71][Gienger, 33][Fernie, 66, 69][Hall, 122-123]

The Diamond, in its rarity and beauty, is a symbol of purity and innocence, of love and fidelity, and embraces strength of character, ethics, and faithfulness to oneself and others. It is indicative of the loving and open nature with which one came into the physical realm, and encourages the aspect of truth and trust. It is a love-bearing crystal, regarded in antiquity as dependable in its virtues only when received as a gift. Today the engagement ring, wedding ring, and other articles of jewelry symbolize the gift of persons in love. [Gienger, 33][Ahsian, 136][Melody, 243][Kunz, 73][Mella, 84]    

Perfect in structure, Diamond is referred to as the “king of gems,” unique in its powers of light reflection and dispersion, and the hardest natural substance known. Composed of pure carbon, the foundational element of life, it is the one and only “10” on the hardness scale, crystallized deep in the earth’s mantle under intense heat and pressure. Its name is derived from the Greek adamas, meaning “indomitable,” “unbreakable,” or “untamable,” and diaphanus, meaning “transparent.” [www.mindat.org][www.gemdat.org][Fernie, 64-65][Mella, 82][Megemont, 77]

Diamond’s crystal symmetry is cubic, forming in a variety of octahedrons, triangles, cubes and amorphous shapes, and may be transparent, translucent or opaque, with a greasy luster and perfect cleavage. Diamond is most often thought of as colorless, though it also forms in white, black, and various shades of yellow, brown, blue, green, pink, red, champagne-tan, cognac-brown, and very rarely, lilac. While quality Diamonds are carefully cut into gems and used in jewelry, lesser Diamonds are used in industrial applications, especially for cutting and polishing. For metaphysical use, Diamond crystals are preferred to cut Diamonds because the natural shape acts to strengthen and harmonize the energies moving through them. [www.mindat.org][Simmons, 134-135]

Diamond Uses and Purposes

Diamonds are great conductors and amplifiers of energy, absorbing thoughts and feelings then radiating them outward. Remain positive while holding or wearing Diamonds to project empowering thoughts around you and attract a positive reaction from others. They can be useful in the workplace for a congenial atmosphere, or for expanding the field of opportunities in attracting prosperity. Be aware, however, Diamonds increase negative energies as well as positive, and while they never need re-charging, it is a good idea to cleanse their energies from time to time. [Mella, 84][Hall, 122-123][Eason, 136][Simmons, 135]

A Diamond is a symbol of wealth, accumulation and the manifestation of abundance. It is also an ideal stone for the ascetic who has given up on material wealth, choosing it instead as an object for diligent contemplation and deep meditation. The fact it must be cut to reveal its beauty compares to the inner, spiritual beauty of the human being. [Hall, 122][Megemont, 78]

Diamond crystals assist in relieving fear and anxiety, overactive imaginations and hallucinations. It is great for clearing a room before bedtime to prevent nightmares, and may be used to cleanse an area of unwanted entities. [Fernie, 66]

Rough Diamond elixir is marvelous for counteracting exhaustion. Add a few drops in the bath to re-energize. [Eason, 136] Raw crystals are ideal for healing to bring clarity of energy to any part of the body or any level of the energy field. Faceted gems may be used to infuse the aura with full-spectrum Light energy, reflecting all hues and frequencies for strengthening and cleansing. [Ahsian, 136]

According to the German mystic, Hildegard of Bingen, sucking on a Diamond will keep one from lying. It will also fool hunger, making it easier to fast. [Megemont, 78]

Diamond Physical Healing Energy

Diamond is considered a master healer for its ability to unify the mind and body. It is best used as a support stone, amplifying the powers of other minerals when working on specific issues, especially where congestion of energy has caused a physical imbalance. [Eason, 136][Ahsian, 136]

The Diamond is beneficial in purifying and strengthening brain function, nerves and sensory organs. It is thought to aid in balancing the brain hemispheres, and to be good for strokes, epilepsy, and to combat aging of the cells and restoring energy levels. It should be avoided in cases of paranoid psychosis, depressive manias, and obsessive jealousy. [Gienger, 33][Eason, 136][Megemont, 78-79]

Diamonds have been used to cure constipation, urine retention, and in general, all organs concerned with removing waste from the body. Applying a Diamond at the kidneys is reputed to accelerate the evacuation of stones. As the effect will persist after it has been removed, it is recommended to proceed in short sessions of five minutes. [Megemont, 78-79]

Diamond Emotional Healing Energy

While Diamonds do not work directly on the emotional body, their intense energy can amplify the power of any emotional state, from bliss to despair, and should be worn with vigilance. It may even be necessary to remove them if one is in a particularly bad frame of mind. However, Diamonds infuse all levels of the energetic self with Light and may be used therapeutically to intensify and “burn through” underlying emotional issues, allowing one to feel lighter, more joyful, and more aligned with Spirit. [Simmons, 135][Ahsian, 136]

Diamond Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy

Diamond carries a high-frequency energy that stimulates and opens all of the chakras, especially the Crown and Etheric Chakras. [Ahsian, 135]

The Crown Chakra is located at the top of the head, and is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs and the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence and is the source of universal energy and truth. When the Crown is in balance, our energies are in balance. We know our place in the universe and see things as they are. We are unruffled by setbacks, knowing they are an essential part of life.

Etheric Chakras are considered to be above the head and are attuned to higher, more spiritually enlightened things. They embody true humility and provide a soul connection, the highest self-illumination, and a cosmic doorway to other worlds. [Hall II, 366] Diamonds in particular identify with the immortal part of the self – personal identification with the Infinite, and oneness with God, peace and wisdom. [Raphell, 159, 164]

Diamond Spiritual Energy

For anyone who has lost their identity or self-worth, is confused, reluctant or unable to step into their spiritual destiny in this life, the Diamond brings a sense of radiance, a loving energy that clears the aura and fills the emptiness with purity and Light. It links with the Divine, and as the evolution and required growth manifests within the heart, it allows the soul’s light to shine out and be shared with others. [Eason, 136][Ahsian, 135][Melody, 243-244][Hall, 123]

Diamond also encourages one to look at the struggles and hardships of life and see if the lessons and growth they’ve provided can be used in a positive way. The Diamond lends strength in dealing with high-pressure situations and assists in responding with grace. It asks us to be a model of fortitude in times of adversity, and helps one understand it is in these difficult times our behavior reveals our true inner beauty and our soul’s knowledge. [Ahsian, 135]

Diamond Color Energy

The clear, colorless Diamond is not influenced by color energy; rather it is a stone of light, an ideal prism, diffusing all the colors of the spectrum.

Diamonds also form in many colors, adding their own unique properties to the energy of the stone. (See Crystal Color Energy under Free Guides)

Meditation with Diamond

Diamond crystals are perfect transducers, allowing the high-frequency vibrational energies of the spirit realms to be more available to the conscious self. Used in meditation, especially when placed on the Third Eye, these crystals facilitate the entry into meaningful visionary states and may heighten one’s psychic powers. Placing a second Diamond over the heart activates the energetic circuit between the two vital centers and influences them to act in synergistic union as Nature intended. [Simmons, 135]

Diamond Divination

The Divinatory meaning of Diamond: Proof of your abilities will come from an unexpected source. [Eason, 136]

Dreaming of Diamonds signifies victory over enemies. [Kunz, 358]

Diamond and the Angelic Realm

Diamonds often carry the energies of angelic beings that are aligned with courage and Light, and inspire us to bravely express our most sacred self.

Diamond Goddess Crystals

Diamonds honor Angerona, the Roman Goddess of Silence, and the Goddess of the Winter Solstice. She is not only the protector of secrets, but brings the birth of the New Year.

Clear crystals may also be used to honor Kundalini, the Hindu Life Force Goddess; and Latona, the Roman Goddess of Light.

Diamond Talismans and Amulets

The Diamond has been used since antiquity as a talisman against cowardice, and is traditionally worn against the skin for courage and to enhance invulnerability. It rallies strength with age, and brings emotional and intellectual confidence. [Melody, 243][Eason, 136]

Diamond is an Enhancer Purifier crystal. Enhancers have internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. As “building block” talismans, their internal structure helps focus our efforts to build on our successes and enhance our lives. They concentrate our energy on the improvements we desire and thought patterns that will produce the actions needed to bring them about.

Purifiers are the natural elements of nature. Only a few, such as gold, silver, copper, sulfur and carbon (as Diamond) are found in a pure state and are suitable as talismans. They carry the earth power to assist our efforts in accomplishing goals where a higher purpose transcends our own personal needs. They promote truth and honor, patience and courage, and protecting innocence. They inspire spiritual growth and aid in our quests to remain faithful to a partner or an ideal.

Diamond Feng Shui

Diamond crystals are perfect “energy dispersers” in any window. As a natural prism, they take light and energy from the sun and disperse it freely within the room. They offer an indoor sun world for warmth, strength and vitality.
