Cubic Zirconia is a man-made stone and is widely used to replace diamonds. It is a powerful healing stone with a perfectly aligned crystalline structure that allows for transformation. It transmutes negative energy to positive. It has the properties of virtue and unification. It will assist one with bringing continuity to activities and seeing situations from a broad perspective. A wise and authoritative source conveyed that cubic zirconia has the same energetic effects as diamonds.
Diamond - Long held in the treasuries of kings and queens, diamonds were believed to offer access to the Divine energies. This is one reason why diamonds have been set in crowns. Putting such a stone near the brain, particularly at the forehead, can enhance one's inner vision and intuitive connection with the higher Spirit realms. Worn in everyday life, diamonds can intensify one's ability to focus consciousness on manifesting one's goals, dreams and destiny. They seem to emanate more energy for their size than any other stone, and may amplify the power of any emotional state, from uplifted to depressed. They can work therapeutically to "burn through" underlying emotional issues. Diamonds encourage us to see the Light within and to radiate that light outward, illuminating ignorance and illusion. Diamonds often carry the energies of angelic beings who are aligned with both courage and light. They encourage us to express our most sacred self.
