In this article I am going to talk about the meaning of diamonds and especially about their metaphysical properties. Everybody knows quite a lot of information related to these supreme gemstones, but the meaning, spiritual and healing sides of diamond jewels are generally not well known. It is not enough to know all about the gemstone's optical and physical properties, nor about the four Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat) - there is a more spiritual point to these wondrous crystals. In addition to purchasing diamonds as fashion items and as a mean to express your life style, you should learn about what this crystal can offer in sense of improving your life, your environment, your energy and your ongoing personal growth process.
In short, diamonds represent faithfulness, love, purity, innocence, and relationships filled with love. It removes certain types of deviations in the aura, which can be best imagined as sort of voids, and diamond fills them with the pure energy of love. It inspires creativity, ingenuity, inventivity, faith, endurance, and helps in manifesting abundance in all areas of life. Diamond is a symbol of the richness of the Self. As the hardest mineral of all, it is especially esteemed owing to its beauty, purity, and ability to reflect light in a special manner. Diamond brings purity, and clear positive resolution of all problems that bother us, especially after we have become willing to admit our wrong perceptions and approaches, or our unreal expectations. Diamonds work together with other crystals in accentuating their vibratory, healing qualities and can be used for example in crystal healing therapy.
Color and Physical Properties
Diamonds are created out of pure carbon. They have very strong crystal structure where the carbon atoms in the crystal are especially strongly bonded. They can form octahedral (classical diamond), trapezoidal and dodecahedral crystals. It their most perfect form they are colorless and with special fire patterns. Naturally, they can be found in all nuances and colors, from white, black, pale pink, yellow, red, orange, green, blue, and brown, and this has to do with impurities of some light elements, like for example nitrogen. Due to the presence of certain foreign atoms the color of diamond can be altered, for example, only one atom of boron that comes on milion atoms of carbon can effectively absorb the color from the red part of the spectrum and thus produce color change to blue. Actually, diamonds are among the purest crystals that can be obtained either in nature or in laboratory.
One of the best known diamonds in the word, the Hope Diamond owns its color due to boron defects. Natural blue diamonds are extremely rare, and incredibly expensive. On the other hand, if there is nitrogen in diamond's crystal structure what will be absorbed is the violet end of the electro-magnetic spectrum which produces yellow color of the diamond. The colors are an interesting subject and you can find more about the color symbolism of crystals here.
The Metaphysical Meaning of Diamond
The Hindu tradition relates diamonds to the planet Venus, while some other ancient peoples believed that they are connected to the planet Mars. The later is probably due to the warriors' custom of wearing diamond stones in battle for protection and strength. It was thought that diamonds make the warriors invincible and that they fortify their muscles. In favor of this thesis speaks the Greek word for diamond - adamas - which means invincible.
The diamonds have been called kings of all crystals, stones of the mind and gemstones of the masters. This is no doubt, the most powerful crystal imaginable in the domain of metaphysics. It is able of reaching deep into us and opening much more spiritual doors than any other stone. Even more than that, diamond is able to bring abundance and fulfillment of the desires or undertaking you can only dare to imagine. If you dare to dream your own and true destiny, diamond is here to help you accomplish it.
The meaning of diamonds from the more meditative point of view is simple: this gemstone is capable of cleansing your energetic obstacles. By the increased feeling of self respect and self love diamond will also help you understand your own emotional obstructions. Purified by the diamond you will shine up to the eternity and be perfect. That will bring you inner peace and a feeling of calm. Diamond is as well capable of casting away the negative emotions and thoughts that might want to find their way to you, thus increasing your physical, mental, and spiritual energy, and bringing positive mental attitude. It will enable new things to start happening in your life. It will increase your energy on various levels slowing down the aging process. Physically, it will help regenerate the cells in the body. "Amante de Dio", the Italian word means the lover of God. So it will help you make a better contact with the Divine.
Physical and Mental Healing wit Diamonds and their Care
In meditation, as a stone of the intellect, it helps the mind to detach itself from the unwanted and unnecessary thoughts, bringing mental clarity to where it is most needed. Indeed, the picture of a perfect brilliant diamond was often used in the meditative practices of different spiritual traditions for thousands of years.
Diamond activates the seventh crown chakra Sahasrara. It unites the body with the mind, and is able to help prevent cardiovascular diseases. It can stimulate the glands of the endocrine system, and help in cases such as leukemia and skeletal problems. It can enhance sight, and help balance the metabolism. It is believed to be able to heal capillary bleeding. Diamond gives an increased power to help resist addiction, especially if related to increased food intake, and cigarets.
Due to its metaphysical features, there is no need to internally purify or do crystal charging of diamonds. So indeed, I hope you have realized what the meaning of diamonds is and how powerful they are in sense of their metaphysical, healing and spiritual properties. The price of the natural gemstones is high, but their benefits can also be substantial if you know how to properly use them in healing, meditation, and crystals programming.

Thank you for sharing your information....are there classes on line? My hobbies are learning and using chrystals.
Thanks for reading. Sorry, no online classes for now, but there might be an e-book soon...
I did a shaman journey , during it they placed a huge blue diamond inside of my heart ,it was beautifuuly cut do you know what this means
i just like diamond, there is something about it which i cant express.
Yes, indeed, the feeling is unlike with any other stone. Even the cheapest black diamonds will provide you with the king of pleasure
you speak about.
Diamond is truely a magnificient gemstone. As a wearer of the stone I can appreciated its beauty and grace. On my wedding my husband presented me with stunning earings stud, diamond bangle and diamond aquamarine ring. Its really is a majestic gemstone
You are totally right, Daisy - no gemstone can ever come close to it.
I really enjoyed reading it.
I was looking for a pendulum and it said that that pendulum was with diamond. It costs for $30. Do you think it's real? Seems a quite small pendulum.
I don't want to buy fake crystal though...Or it doesn't matter if i have a fake diamond or real?
I believe that you can buy a nice Rock Crystal pendulum for that amount of money, but a real diamond - no way -
with all due respect toward the merchant. And yes, it does matter if you have a real, natural diamond versus a man made
alternative - at least when it come to diamond's metaphysical properties there is a big difference.
Thanks for your response.
I think I should go for just "nice" crystal.
Since my bith rock is a diamond, I was very fascinated to buy something with diamond like pendulum but NO more (unless someone buys my a real diamond)!
You should not be discouraged, however, in your desire to buy a real diamond (or a combination of it). You can do that for a reasonable
amount of money, only it won't be a perfectly cut, transparent Diamond. Indeed, you can find opaque, but still very nice looking black or brown
one carat diamonds for as little as $150. Being real diamonds, even though not so perfect, they are certainly worth the price.

I just got a diamond ring. It's 2 in 1 design. After 2weeks I was robbed at my house. They took a lot of money and valuables. The only valuable thing left was my
diamond ring. They don't know it's diamond. Ok my point is this. Since the robbery I can feel the inpact of the diamond in my life. Yes i got closer to God. Positive thoughts.
And I'm so convident I will regain my loss.
I am very sorry to hear about all this. May God's love be with you, always. My best wishes to you for a very quick and complete recovery.
Mary Mears says:
Hi, I just want u to know that a preacher came to our church and lay hands on me and called me a Diamond. I didn't know or understand what she meant. But now since I read on
about a Diamond, I realize what the LORD was saying to me, and I was really bless by reading this artical, THANK U VERY MUCH.
Thank you too Mary for dropping by and sharing your insight with us.
Adrian Robles says:
Thank you very much for your article on the meaning of a diamond. I am a bass player with the praise and worship team of my church and during worship service I saw a vision of a diamond as I was playing my instrument. I now know what God is telling me thanks to your article.
Thanks for the nice words Adrian. God Bless you too!
Diamond indeed is an irresistable gemstone. As a wearer I am absolutely inspired by its power and sparks. It energy and radiant is enchanting and exquisite.
So true Diem, so true!
Beautiful article. A nice diamond pendent to myself is my next mission.
Thanks Raissa, and may your next mission be completed very soon!
Just got a diamond tattooed on me
I’m really happy with it - it sits behind my right ear - and I was originally going to have a star tatted but went with a diamond at the last moment -
surely I was drawn to it for these reasons listed above! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you too Kristi, for dropping by and for sharing your thoughts with us!
Hi, thanks for the wonderful explanation of the Metaphysical meaning of diamond. My college sweet heart just gave me a present a promise and anniversary ring.
I love it so much and I can't stop looking at it all the time especially when the sun hit on it and the sparkle is so amazing and un-describable feeling inside me upon watching it's shine. Thank you and I enjoyed reading your information about it.
The sparkle of Diamond is something that truly separates this great gemstone from any other stone or crystal. Thanks for sharing!
I just had a reading where I was told the reader saw white diamonds in the palms of my hands and bright light shining out from the diamonds. What do you think this means?
One possible interpretation could be related to the energy centers in the palms of the hands. Every human being possesses two important energy centers in the palms, and this
reading could mean that your centers are strong and active, irradiating energy in the surrounding space, just like diamonds reflect intense fire and light around them.
Just curious. I just bought some diamond earrings and by reading your article I'm under the impression that you don't have to clean your earrings. So I wont have to clean my diamonds with palo santo or spiritual cleanse them? Thank you, I really enjoy your website
Hi Chris. The idea is that diamonds are so powerful stones that they sort of spiritually cleanse themselves. But you can always use incense or other ways of spiritual purification if you like. And, many thanks for your comment.
just asking.... can the inherent purity of diamond be adulterated by some black rituals? If so, can it be reversed?
Diamond is one of the gems we belive cannot be adulterated and that's what make it such a beneficial spiritual stone.
Anthony F says:
In this morning's meditation/journey, I was told "see through/with the clarity of the diamond." It was the "right eye," only. Thank you for the information of this article.
That is a great insight, Anthony. Thanks for sharing.
Hi I was lucky enough to be walking down the street and hello I looked down and there was this little heart necklace with a diamond in it. I wasn't sure so I got a jeweller to look
at it for me and yes it is a true diamond. Is there any meaning on this or is it bad luck. I luv your site and thank you for taking the time to read this. Sue xo
This question is in fact very general and not necessarily related to diamonds. It has to do with all types of found objects:
should we take them, leave them be, try to find their owner, or do something else? There are different opinions and I think everyone has to decide for themselves.
I personally never touch them, even if they are as valuable as diamonds.
Recently I bought a vintage diamond ring because I could not resist the stones and thought about them for months. Previously I was determined to make danburite the last of the crystals that I would bring home. Do the diamonds indicate that I am making progress in the right direction? I explained it to others as wanting to honour a special family event. Thank you!
Bekele yohanes Abiy says:
Diamond has more power when used in spritual activities, like sucsses, love ,money & wardoff from evil. Please if you have one, don't sell it even
if you are in money crisis because it is hard to return your life in previous condition.
Diamonds as spiritual stones:
Hey I was wondering about the black diamond I saw a beautiful sterling silver dragonfly pendent with black diamonds from its head to the end of its tail ..could you please tell me it's spiritual meaning and should I purchase it ?
Black diamonds have a similar meaning to their transparent relatives, except for the black color which should add some extra protection and grounding. As for the second part of your question, you alone should be the judge of that.
ruby nicor says:
I'm just curious about the black diamond because I have a dream about it so I'm searching the meaning of it.
My experience with black diamond is very different. I've felt subtle pains in my brain when I hold them, which has been a clear indication for me to keep away from
them. It's not an uplifting gem. It will challenge you to face the darker aspects within yourself. It's a matter of attuning your awareness to its frequency and
experiencing it for yourself. Your felt sense will indicate if it's right for you. All gems have something to reflect back to us. When certain challenging aspects need
to be faced, black diamond can be a tool to aide in that transformation. If not, then on the contrary, it could be quite unsettling and ungrounding.
Thanks so much for your opinion on black diamonds.
You are welcome. I am investigating the subject of therapeutic diamonds. It was information brought through many years ago by Ginny Katz, (author of 'Gift of Gemstone Guardians') now known as Isabelle Morton. She recently returned to the scene again.
Her website is www.gemformulas.com. Diamonds that carry the spectrum of the 7 color rays are powerful therapeutic tools. Does anyone have more information on this?
