Diamonds have a very prominent place in Ancient Greek culture, and it was believed that diamonds were tears of the Gods, or remnants of fallen stars. It is important to note that, in Greek mythology, stars are believed to be heroes who have earned a place in the skies due to their heroic deeds. These heroes and beasts were regarded as semi-divine spirits.
Renowned Greek philosopher Plato suggested that diamonds held mystic powers and that they were, in reality, celestial beings trapped in crystals.
