And get this: according to the Gemological Institute of America, the diamond is 58 times harder than anything else in nature. Seriously? That’s some very tough stuff!
The diamond might be my new spirit stone: strong & beautiful!
A diamond’s structure is made up completely of carbon, just like graphite, but because they have very different formation processes and structure, you can write with one (good old No. 2 pencil!) and could hardly manage to scratch another. Here’s a little more about the sparkly stuff:
Although the diamond comes from humble carbon, it’s not at all a thrifty material. One way to enjoy the sparkle of a diamond without breaking the bank is to choose faceted crystal beads.
Today’s project, the Triple Decadence necklace, features three different sizes of faceted crystal beads as well as pavé pendants and a sweet pavé arrow charm.
You could choose another pavé style Charm Gallery charm that perfectly suits your tastes and interests.
