Diamond is the birthstone for the month of April and the gemstone representing the 10th and 16th wedding anniversary. It is derived from the Greek word Adamas, meaning "unconquerable", reflecting a recognition of diamond's superior hardness. Many cultures believe a diamond is associated with the moon and the sun to resemble its colorlessness, brilliance, hardness, and value. The power of a diamond is diminished once it is bought, but preserved and enhanced when given as a gift. They are symbols of love, purity, and faith to some, and to others they symbolize ideas such as power, success, and security. Romance is the image a diamond portrays when reflected in lovers' eyes.
