Diamonds

There are gems.

And then there is the diamond.

Having spent close to 3 billion years 150 Kms below the Earth’s surface it has learnt how not to break under any circumstance.

What amazes me though, is its brilliant sparkle. It is not how it lets light pass through it that amazes me, but how it willfully bends it to create this sparkle. Having spent a billion years in darkness, how does it know how to control light?
