History: The earliest diamonds were found in India in 4th century BC, although the youngest of these deposits were formed 900 million years ago. A majority of these early stones were transported along the network of trade routes that connected India and China, commonly known as the Silk Road.

Gold was generally used for a couple thousand years solely to create things such as jewelry and idols for worship. This was until around 1500 BC when the ancient empire of Egypt, which benefited greatly from its gold-bearing region, Nubia, made gold the first official medium of exchange for international trade.

Some cultures, like the ancient Egyptians, buried their dead with seashells, seeing them as a tool to aid the journey into the afterlife. In a more general sense, seashells often symbolize the beach, the ocean, summer, and tranquility. They can remind us of happy times, like a vacation or a special moment by the sea

What do Seashells represent? Some people believe a shell's hard texture makes one's mind stronger. That is why seashells stand for a resilient and determined mindset. It also represents protection against evil spirits. Similarly, others believe shells are a bridge between the physical and the supernatural realm.
