CHAKRA:Third Eye/Brow Chakra
ZODIAC:  Aries, Taurus

Sparkling with an internal fire all its own, diamond is one of the world’s most sought-after and adored gemstones. Those born in April are lucky enough to call this scintillating gem their birthstone, a symbol of clarity and strength. Diamond is so strong, in fact, that its name comes from the Greek word "adamas," which means “invincible” or “unbreakable.” The timeless charm of diamond was cherished long before it became the April birthstone, and the places where diamond comes from are as fascinating as the lore that surrounds it.1

Diamond - also known as Vajra - aids in the healing of the Ajna Chakra. The Anja Chakra or brow chakra is linked to the Pineal gland/Third eye area. This Ajna means command. It is also the point where Shiva and Shakti become one. The cosmic colour is Indigo. Known for its amazing blue colour the Hope diamond remains one of the (if not the) most famous diamonds in history.  Learn more at the GIA Institute.

The emotion that interrupts the flow of energy through this chakra is illusion or Maya, and one of the gemstones that help to clear the blockages of this chakra is a Natural Diamond/White Sapphire, the gem of the planet of beauty and luxury – Venus.
