Diamond Process

o understand your brilliance, understand the process of a diamond!!

An uncut a diamond is an ordinary looking rock. In fact if you didn’t know what it was, you would probably just throw it away. 

So what's gives these rocks their priceless value? 

They've got to be cut...

The original shape of the "rough" diamond determines the shape of the final gem. 

The "rough" suggests where the cuts should be and how deep they should go. 

If a diamond is cut too deep, the light escapes downwards and the center will appear dark. 
A cut too shallow results in light escaping through the base and it will look watery, dull or grey...

The perfect cut warms the diamond with fire and brilliance.

When a "rough" is cut and polished, up to 75% of its bulk is lost in the process.

It knows that if it wants to sparkle and gleam with fire and beauty, that cutting is a process it must endure. 

Without being cut it can never be a diamond...

Surrender to the process, in the hand of The Master You to are a diamond in the rough
