Origin:

Today's noun diamond went in Middle High Germandiamond[1][2], dīamante[1] and dīemant[1][2] ahead. In Middle Low German existed in the 15th century dēmant[2]which, like the Middle High German forms, was borrowed from the 13th century from the Old Frenchdiamond represents[1][2]. This was about the Middle Latindiamas[1][2] or diamonds[2] ahead, the root of which in each case diamond- read[1][2]. The Middle Latin forms are likely over * adimas to the Latinadamās→ la or adamāns, adamantis→ la 'Steel, diamond[1]‘And the corresponding ancient Greekἀδάμας (adámās)→ grc 'Very hard material, steel, diamond'[2]. In ancient Greek ἀδάμας, which actually stands for 'the indomitable (stone)', it is a question - probably folk etymological[1] - to the verbδαμνάναι (damnánai)→ grc 'Conquer' related education with alpha privativum[2]. Before the properties of metals and minerals were studied by scientific means, they were the subject of superstitious and allegorical interpretations.[1] In the case of diamonds, the focus was on its particular hardness, due to which it was seen as invincible.[1] The word beginning with slide- first appeared in Romance languages[1] and on the one hand, following the example of prefix compounds with slide- have arisen[2] or there is a folk etymological reference to the verb διαφαίνειν (diaphaínein)→ grc 'Shine through' to distinguish it from the meaning 'metal'[1].
