Standing to the side of the Pyramid of the Magician, the decoration of the North wall of the Nunnery at Uxmal, the greatest of the Puuc style of Mayan architecture, is triumphant.

Uxmal

In the courtyard near the pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal towers, the stone carvings in the frieze take the form of an undulating ribbon. With a little alchemy, I transformed the stone into a gold (or silver) cuff, hoping not to ruffle any of those priestly feathers up on high.

Diamond

Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
