Those lucky enough to be born in April have diamond as their official birthstone. Diamonds are traditionally linked to love, and eternal endurance because of diamond's superior hardness. The name diamond is derived from the Greek 'adamas', which means invincible. Traditionally diamond is accepted as the 10th and 60th wedding anniversary presents. Other white gemstones can also be used in place of diamond when a large stone is required, such as goshenite or danburite. While many imagine diamond to always be white, there are many colored diamonds available, such as champagne, cognac diamonds and blue diamonds. There are round diamonds, trillions and other shapes available in stock. Also available are white diamond lots, which are perfect for accent stones. Sapphire is the astrological stone for Taurus. Those looking for Taurus stones have a wide choice of sapphire gems to choose from in various colors, shapes and sizes. For those born in the first half of April, bloodstone is the Aries stone. Additionally, Vedic birthstones for April are yellow sapphire for the first part of the month and red coral for the later part. Depending on which system of beliefs you follow, there are several choices of April birthstones.
