According to Gemsutra.com, diamonds come from the very bosom of the earth. It takes millions of years to make a diamond. Millions of years, are you kidding me!? Why on earth does it take sooo long to make something so beautiful? If the earth has so many precious little beauties to give us, then why even after they are formed, does it take thousands of years for them to come to the surface? If nature can produce such beautiful fruits, I would be inclined to think that it would be more willing to share them.
The word diamond comes from the Greek word "Adamas," which means indestructible. I like that.
I like it a lot.
Think about it.
