Many people are surprised when they find out how diamonds are actually made. People know that gem stones are mined, but many still don’t realize or at least pay much attention to the fact that a little lump of coal turns into a nice diamond.
Can you imagine that something so messy, dark and seemingly worthless in many eyes turns out to be such a prized possession? There are of course diamonds of less traditional colors which come from coal. The process indeed takes many years, but there are tons of diamonds out there being mined daily by companies, having stemmed from a simple piece of coal.
