A diamond is a symbol of enduring love because of its durability and longevity
Diamonds mostly occur as isolated crystals. The name ‘diamond’ was taken from the Greek word, ‘adamas’, meaning ‘invincible’, a sheer testament to its remarkable and superior hardness.
The superlative physical qualities of a diamond are credited to the strong covalent tetrahedral bonding between its transparent crystals.
Diamond is the transparent, gemstone-quality crystalline form of carbon and it is indeed the hardest known natural substance on Earth.
