~DIAMOND HEAD~

Diamond Head is the name of a tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of O'ahu and known to Hawaiians as Leahi, which means "brow of the tuna". Its English name was given by British sailors in the 19th century, who mistook calcite crystals embedded in the rock for diamonds.
Diamond Head, like the rest of the Honolulu Volcanics, are much younger than the main mass of the Koolau Mountain Range. While the Koolau Range is about 2.6 million years old, Diamond Head is estimated to be about 200,000 years old. It is located on the coast east of Waikiki (in Honolulu) and is a defining feature of the view known to residents and tourists alike. A symbol of worldwide recognition not inlike the Rock of Gibraltar.
The volcanic cone is a State Monument. A popular trail and stairway lead from the interior of the crater to lookouts along the rim.




This was taken from the plane as it taxied down the runway.
It shows most of Honolulu with Diamond Head stretching out to the right.


The first three photos (above and below left) were taken from the boardwalk on Waikiki at varying zoom levels. The lower right was taken after I had walked the beach for a while. Probably very near the Royal Hawaiian.

On left we have the rear portion of the Diamond Head cone from Kapiolani Park. On the right from the plane on the way to The Big Island.


These were taken from the mountains during my bus hopping tour.

Another shot from up in the mountains

And one from a bus stop


The closeup on the left shows a couple of the viewing platforms with viewers atop Diamond Head. The photo on the right was my last look at Diamond Head, Honolulu and Oahu from my plane back to the Mainland.
