That makes diamonds perfect for using in drill bits burrowing beneath the Earth’s surface. Diamonds were believed by some ancient peoples to offer protection from home, which made them popular gemstones to include in armour. Kings would have their leather breastplates studded with diamonds in an attempt to harness their God-given powers to bring them luck and protect them as they led armies into battle. The earliest known diamonds were discovered in India, where they were found in the country’s rivers and streams. It has actually been suggested that India started its love affair with the gemstone as early as the fourth century BC.
