Legend has it that Europeans first "discovered" African diamonds
in a shaman's leather pouch. Though reports of this legend are
sketchy, if it is based on fact the African shaman might have used his diamonds much as shamans in other parts of the world use quartz crystals.
Anciently, diamonds were worn as polished stones. They were
treasured for their beauty, but it wasn't until recently that their dazzling appearance was created. After people discovered that applying a bit of pressure at the correct point on a diamond produced a facet, the stone was prized for its prismatic fire. Today, the world's supply of diamonds is carefully controlled to maintain an artificially high price-a surplus of diamonds on the market considerably lowers their worth. Such greedy measures haven't lessened the magical value of the diamond. Because these high prices keep many of us from experimenting with the ritual uses of diamonds, you can use herkimer diamond, quartz crystal, and zircon as substitutes.

Earth Spirit, ELVES – According to Norse mythology, elves and dwarves are created in the time before humans from the body of Ymir, the giant. Inhabiting one of the upper worlds, and often found in Natural settings such as woodlands and forests, elves are somewhere between mortal and divine. Originally between 5 and 7 ft. tall, they were thin, strong, flexible, and quick. Their hair was usually red, blond, or light brown, and they had cat-like ears. Their cat-like eyes are green, blue, silver, or gold with slitted pupils. Through time, the elves became Elemental spirits of the land, sea, and forest, who are sometimes portrayed as small, good-natured creatures with brown skin and delicate features. Iron does not kill elves, but it can injure them. They adore gifts of quartz crystal, pearl, moonstone, and silver.
