Diamond is not exactly a gemstone that has stayed behind the shadows. It is indeed so popular and widely acknowledged as the definitive gemstone that one wonders if its fame is blown a tad out of proportion. Given this circumstance, it might understandably sound queer to see the adjective “astrological” put before a diamond, as if there is one thing the gemstone’s popularity has achieved, is its aesthetic image.
The reason for most of us seeing Diamond in an astrological light seems a bit odd has to do a lot with its representation in popular culture, especially Western popular culture. So emboldened has the image of Diamond as a gemstone meant to maximise and ornamental beauty been, that it is hardly possible for anyone to see beyond this veneer unless prompted to. Hoping this article is a good enough push, here is what “Astrological Diamond” signifies.
An astrological diamond is not a special entity as such. It is still an ordinary diamond; an allotrope of Carbon resulted by eons of compression of organic matter below the earth’s crust, creating one of the hardest elements known to humankind. So, what exactly is it that invokes the aforementioned adjective? The answer is, at the risk of being anticlimactic, quite simple. Wht we understand to be a standard diamond is one we would expect to find at a jewellery shop. When crystals of Diamond are mined from the underground, they are of coarse texture and hardly hold any semblance of the glittering gemstone we know it to be. The coarse and unrefined crystals go through tremendously elaborate processes of refinement, cleaning and shaping, before they assume shapes that we would be familiar with.
This is the exact juncture where the split occurs between a standard and an astrological diamond. Diamonds to be used for jewellery purposes are subjected to many subsequent processes that involve chemical refinement and intense heating procedures. These processes are meant to increase the shine and lustre of the diamonds, which they definitely succeed in. But these processes are deemed to be unethical by the astrology communities; they are known to destroy the astrological properties of the diamonds.
Astrological diamonds on the other hand, are simply the crystals which have not gone through redundant refinement processes. These crystals despite being not as dazzling as regular diamonds are amply clear and transparent, and unmistakably diamonds. They also retain fully the astrological powers they are claimed to possess and can be worn by customers who would solely want to wear diamonds for their fabled powers.
The way of going about buying an astrological diamond is as simple as this differentiation. If you were to buy astrological diamond jewellery- a necklace or a pair of earrings for instance- you would visit the best name in the business of jewellery. The case for astrological diamonds should be no different. If you want to buy a diamond for astrological purposes, you should not settle for anything less than absolute authenticity, which Khanna Gems promptly offers.
