Diamond has always been considered the "king of gemstones." Pliny the Elder (23-79 AD) wrote of it, "It is the most precious of all human goods ... and long known only to kings, and few at that." The "invincibility" of the Diamond runs through the entire mythology. It represented strength, courage and invulnerability, and was considered an effective means against demonic forces. In ancient times, diamonds were transported from India to Europe by caravan trade. Many legends entwine about the famous Indian Diamonds, such as the "Great Mogul" or the "Nizam", which have a high purity and transparency.
