Diamond is the hardest known mineral and one of the purest conductors of heat, and electricity among known natural materials. It measures 10 on the Mohs scale and is difficult to scratch. Because of the Diamond stone properties, there are industrial-grade Diamonds that vary from being used in Knives to Industrial Cutters and are also used to grind minerals that are softer than it.

A well-cut diamond has a high index of refraction due to which it disperses a brilliant light on its surface. Diamonds are found in the mantle of Earth but due to igneous rock deposits, and volcanic eruptions, they have been brought near to the surface of the Earth. This natural phenomenon was one of the causes for which it was considered a potential healing stone by the Ancient World.
Originating at many places across the Globe, Diamonds are found in India, Brazil, Australia,South Africa, and other African countries like Botswana, and Angola.

Since then, Diamonds have been patronized by the Mughal Emperors and adorned the history of India. They were used as religious ornaments, as gifts of love, as it symbolizes love, and to cut metal. The mysteries and stories of its beauty slowly spread to Europe and Persia. It was also exported to China from India via the Silk Route. In ancient times many believed that the Diamonds were lightening which manifested in this form.
Diamonds can also be artificially manufactured, but the optical clarity and rarity of the natural Diamonds (Heera) make them popular. As per recently hypothesized, a large number of Earth’s Diamonds must have originated from meteorites.
Different Types of Diamonds
When we talk about natural Diamond, it conjures the colorless or White gemstone in our mind but there are types of Diamond stones, toned with other colors due to the presence of impurities or defects in its Lattice. The different types of Diamonds are:
White Diamond - The most prized, and commonly worn Diamond. The more colorless it is,the more is its value. Found in most of the Diamond producing countries.
Champagne Diamond - These are natural Diamonds in Brown color with a Yellow tint, giving it an overall color of the Champagne. Varying from lighter to darker shades, Champagne Diamonds color is due to the presence of Nitrogen as an impurity. It is mined in Western Australia.
Pink Champagne Diamonds - This Diamond stone type comes with a secondary Pink color. Due to its attractive color, and flashes which it emits, it is costlier than Champagne Diamonds.
Yellow/Canary Diamonds - Diamonds ranging from deep to light Canary or Yellow color.The deeper the Yellow, the more expensive it is. The lighter shades are more commonly available.
Blue Diamonds - The rarest of rare Diamond type, and are the most expensive. Nevertheless, natural Blue Diamonds are sought after by those who can afford them. Natural Blue Diamond mostly comes with secondary colors like Grey, Green, or Purple. They are mined in only a selected few places, like, Golconda mine, India, Argyle Mine in Australia, and South Africa, it is mined in the Cullinan mine. The rarity of the Blue Diamond makes it more expensive than the White Diamonds.
Orange Diamonds - These come in Fancy Orange color to rich Orange color. The vibrant Orange Diamonds symbolize success and creativity.
Green Diamonds - Naturally found the Green Diamond's color is because of its exposure to radioactivity in the process of it being formed in the Earth’s crust. They are rare to find and were initially mined in India, precisely in the Kollur mine of, Andhra Pradesh.
Purple Diamonds - Not an easy Diamond stone type to find, the Purple color ranges from faint Purple to Fancy dark Purple. The cause of the coloration of this Diamond type has not reached any conclusion as yet.
Synthetic Diamonds - These are man-made Diamonds, therefore are not rare. Grown in laboratories with the same mineral composition, they look similar to natural Diamonds, with even coloration. During the process of creating the Synthetic Diamonds, the various colors like, Canary, Pink, etc., different types of Diamonds that are there are also produced in the
Labs by use of certain chemicals. However, most buyers still prefer a natural Diamond, eventhough Synthetic Diamonds cost less.
In Vedic Astrology, the ruling Planet of Diamond gemstone is Venus. Venus dominates various qualities, and amusement sources of humans related to love, charisma, appeal, luxury, music, and dance. It is associated with pleasures and delights such as physical beauty, attractiveness, love, relationship, wealth, knowledge, and prosperity. A weak Venus may cause issues in relations causing disharmony, the lack of an amicable nature, and physical appeal. Therefore, one can wear a Diamond gemstone to strengthen the power of Venus.
Minimum weight Diamond Astrology to be worn is between 0.30 to 1 Carat for proper effect. Only after your Kundli is examined by a qualified Astrologer can the final weight of the Diamond be decided on.

There are Diamond-like stones and Synthetic Diamonds which are difficult to differentiate by a common buyer so insist on a Lab certificate for authenticity.
Wearing Diamond with Rudraksha
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Diamond gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative, and healing properties of Rudraksha, and Gemstones to balance, and energize Chakras. In RRST, we deal only with natural, and untreated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life, and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. In RRST, setting a gemstone in a ring or a pendant is done by placing the bhasma made of the planetary herb inside one tube, and the metal that improves the planetary effects in another tube. In the case of Diamond, Audumbara Bhasma, and metal Platinum are used to attract the cosmic power of Venus. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus, the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
Recommending a Gemstone based on RRST
During the consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing the mental, emotional, and physical issues are identified, and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts, and attitudes tend towards fears, and negativity when facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. You can live a successful, loved, and happy life only after your blocked Chakras are activated, and balanced. As per the Chakra status, and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone, and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic color they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. So Diamond works on Hrit Padma Chakra, and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy, and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them, and tuning them to their natural state.
Hrit Padma Chakra
Hrit Padma is another name for the Supreme Self or Atman. It is the essential, and ultimate nature, the ineffable dimension of our being. It is the Witness Consciousness which intimates us of all our thoughts, emotions, and sensations. Witness to both the mind, and the universe in its inner, and outer dimensions, the Hrit Padma Chakra, governs life lessons involving love, and compassion. It signifies the sweetness of life and emphasizes the need to lead life unconditionally, with love, and compassion. It signifies self-worth, and self-acceptance, and teaches one to be selfless, and generous.
When imbalanced / blocked you become egoist, harsh, frigid, selfish, and self-centered. You feel lonely, and lack love for yourself as well as for others. When open, and balanced this Chakra denotes the sweetness of life. It makes a person lead a life full of unconditional love, and bliss without any controls or restrictions. Love flows towards every creation of God including self, unconditionally, and with lots of compassion. There is a healthy level of self- worth and self-acceptance. This person also desires a spiritual experience in love and affection.
Hence proper functioning of all the Chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus Chakra cleansing and balancing are essential to enjoy good health, and happiness which translates to overall abundance, and wellbeing in every sphere of life.
Method / procedure of wearing:
At Rudra Centre all the gemstones are pre-energized as per Vedic rituals and can be worn immediately, on the suggested specific right/left-hand finger.

Stones that look like Diamonds
White Sapphire, White Topaz, White Zircon, Cubic Zircon, Moissanite, White Quartz, Goshenite gemstones are Diamond stones. Substitute of Diamond Stone Natural Diamond is an expensive gemstone, and may not be affordable by many natives who have been advised by a Vedic Astrologer to wear it. White Sapphire and Opal are considered the best substitutes for Diamond stone. Though many wear Cubic Zirconia/Zircon, and American Diamonds as a substitute of Diamond Stone, generally Vedic Astrologers prefer White Sapphire, and Opal as they are natural stones while Cubic Zircon and American Diamonds are man-made stone.
How to Test for Real Diamond? How to identify Diamond Stone?
Mounted Diamonds are slightly tricky to test at home. Few ways you can use to identify Diamond stone:
1) Fog test- If the Diamond is mounted, then hold the ring near your mouth and breath out through your mouth with slight force. A thin film of fog will form on the Diamond. If fog dissipates immediately then it is a natural Diamond. The stone conducts heat easily, and so the fog dissipates instantly.
2) If the Diamond is loose, gently drop the stone in a glass of water. If the stone sinks to the bottom, it proves that it is a real Diamond. If it floats on the surface or just below the surface of the water then it is not a real Diamond. Because of the high density of genuine Diamond it sinks.
3) When you hold a loose Diamond on direct heat, and it shatters then it is surely a fake. Diamond. Because the stone is hard, and a good conductor of heat, it easily bears exposure to direct heat.
4) On a piece of paper draw a dot, and place it on a table of the firm surface. Place the Diamond with the flat side down on the dot, and view it from the top, i.e. through the pointed end. If you spot a circular reflection, the diamond is fake. Diamond refracts light, so the dot will not be seen. However, this test is possible with loose diamonds.
These are some of the tests you can do to understand if the Diamond is real or fake but the best is to get it tested by a reputed jeweler or Lab who is equipped to test it. After all, a Diamond is an expensive investment.
How to Clean Diamond Stone
Use a very mild soap water, and soak the Diamond Ring in it. You can put one or two drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl of water for this purpose. After soaking it for some time use a new soft brush (toothbrush), to gently clean the remaining dirt that may have collected. Wipe it dry on a soft cloth. Keep cleaning your Diamond jewelry often to keep it shining brilliantly.
Dear Neeta, Thank you for the mala and the emerald which arrived a few days ago. It all looks very good. Very nice handywork. Also thank you for the cassette. The rendering of the Mrityunjaya mantra is really very wonderful. Sincerely and with the best wishes Ketil Helmersberg
Namaste Sri DharmaDev Arya & Friends, Sisters and Brothers, sorry for long absence and missed you all. Been a busy 3 odd months. Dropping by to say hi to everyone and also to mention that I'd done a 40-day discipline with a Navratna Mala which I got from Rudra Centre India. The results? Absolutely wonderful. For 10 years, everything in my life was blocked and there was no movement. I was neither here nor there. "In limbo" was the best description I could give. Upon 30-odd days of wearing the Navratna mala, everything started happening. All that was stagnant began moving at last. And fast t
Hi Neetaji, Dhramadevji I collected my fedex package from the jewel osco near my home. I really appreciate the excellent customer service you have at Rudra Center. I really like my mala (done in silver). My sister's mala looks awesome as well (sphatik + emerald+rudrakhsa). I was really impressed with the packaging that you had done. The bags + the japa mala bag were really great. I have done pooja and have started wearing my mala as well as doing ganesh japa with my custom rosary. pranaam Desikan
