DIAMOND ICON BUCKET HAT

$50.00

Our “fisher of men” bucket hats provides simple, minimalist comfort making them the perfect fashion item for your daily look. DIAMOND Heb. יהלם yahalom, from הלם halam, to beat, to smite upon, so called from its extraordinary hardness, by which like a hammer it will beat to pieces any of the other sorts of stones. Thus the Greeks called the diamond αδαμας, adamas, from Gr. α, not and δαμαω, damao, to subdue, on account of its supposed invincible hardness. Accordingly Pliny says of diamonds, that ‘they are found to resist a stroke on the anvil to such a degree that the iron itself gives way and the anvil is shattered to pieces.’ This is no doubt exaggerated and fabulous, but it is sufficient to justify the propriety of the Hebrew name, that diamonds are much harder than other precious stones, and in this all are agreed. This quality of the diamond, together with its incomparable brilliancy, renders it by far the most valuable of all the gems. The Gr. here has ιασπις jaspis, or jasper.
