April’s birthstone is DIAMOND. Cherished for more than 6,000 years, diamonds were thought to be pieces of stars that had fallen to Earth. With lore like that, it’s no wonder that diamonds have long been seen as possessing magical and spiritual qualities, such as embodying fearlessness and invincibility! Most people are aware of the diamond’s hardness rating (10 out of 10), but few know how well it can tolerate heat. Diamond’s melting point is 3412°F, while steel melts at only 2500°F! Clean your diamond jewelry with warm, soapy water. Better yet, bring it in to us for a free inspection and cleaning. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, APRIL BABIES!
