April's traditional birthstone, finally the diamond in all its splendorous glory!
"She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow."

Diamonds are said to have healing properties for the brain and pituitary gland, and enhance balance through better understanding relationships and building inner strength. 

The diamond is so
tough, the only other property that can crack or chip a diamond is another diamond!
