The name comes from the Greek word 'damazo' + the privative 'a', as in antiquity all hard stones, which were impossible to be worked, were called diamonds. 
Most likely, the first diamonds were discovered in India, as there are references in Economic and Legal books from the 4th century BC. The evaluation of diamonds and various precious stones progressively developed the art of gemology, while diamonds were subject to tax and customs control. Also, according to the Indians, the diamond had magical properties, and they believed that through it, one could see various dangers and ward them off. The trade and circulation of diamonds in the rest of the world are estimated to have started in the 1st century BC when they passed from India to China, then to Arabia, Persia, and finally to Europe. In the 14th century, diamonds were traded from India to the rest of the world through two routes. The first, the maritime route, started from the Gulf of Cambay, then passed through the Persian Gulf, Ethiopia, and reached Cairo and Alexandria. The second route started from the important commercial center of Hormuz and then crossed Persia and Armenia, reaching Asia Minor or Aleppo in Syria, and from there, diamonds were forwarded to Venice and Constantinople. Venice became the most important center of diamond trading from the 13th to the 16th century, while small diamond processing industries appeared in Flanders during the same period. Until the 16th century, Bruges was the largest diamond processing center in the world. In the 16th century, after a new sea route was discovered from India through the Cape of Good Hope, Lisbon became a key point for diamond trading, while Antwerp, which controlled 40% of world trade, replaced Bruges as the most important processing center. In the early 18th century, besides Antwerp, Amsterdam became an important center for processing and trading diamonds, and development began in London as well. In Amsterdam, in 1822, the first factories with steam-powered processing machines were established. At the same time, new diamond deposits were discovered in the Dos Marinheiros River in Brazil, which were initially considered fake but later proved to be for competitive reasons. In the mid-19th century, large diamond deposits were discovered in South Africa. The first diamond, 10.73 carats, named 'Eureka', was discovered by chance in 1866 on the banks of the Orange River, and in 1869 a large diamond, the 'Star of South Africa' weighing 47.75 carats, was discovered, which became the main reason the area was filled with diamond hunters. The largest diamond known to date is the Cullinan, discovered in 1905 near South Africa, weighing 3,106 carats (= 621.350 grams) before processing. The organization of production and the use of new and modern methods began after 1871 when deposits were found in the Kimberley area and then the first diamond mining company under the name De Beers was formed. Later, in 1930, Ernest Oppenheimer organized the modern global diamond market, which as a control tool has the Central Selling Organization based in London. On September 8, 2008, a 478-carat diamond was discovered in Lesotho, which is also one of the largest in the world."
