I am only a word of five letters, but I have caused great calamities. Take away my head and I enhance a city.
Behead me once more and I am a place where all the world once congregated.
If at first you curtail me, I am a mineral.
Curtail once more and I am a fashionable resort.
Yet if instead you cut off both my head and my tail it does not deteriorate my value.


Answer

Clues: park, ark, spar, spa, par.
