The very name reminds you of an age of diamond mining and the era of exploration carried out by sailors from far flung countries. The Diamond Head Crater is in actuality the tip of a volcano that is located in the state of Hawaii. Located on the island of Ohau, the Diamond Head Crater was named by ancient sailors who mistakenly thought that the volcano was actually the tip of a diamond mine. This was due to the presence of various calcite minerals in the region, which presented to these British sailors with the look of a diamond.
