Born after pressure

There are two types of diamonds, but there are a lot of cuts and qualities they can have. One of them is the industrial one, coal chunk in a compressor, and the second one is the diamond as a gem and as a result of carbon arranged delicately. 
Both of them complete the task of being precious, of being a representation of commitment, of detail, of secureness and protection. This is a story about how diamonds represent more than just money, how they come between elegance and change. 
Born after pressure.
There are people; some we know and some we think we do, they do things; up and down they go, they complete tasks; maybe because they like it or because they have to, they learn; turning from a newborn ugly and unhealthy baby into a relationship of tools and a whole structure, a process. Somehow we don’t understand the possibilities and all the dedicate people that are behind a single rock, and yes, I know sometimes it does not include human activity to get this, but it does needs the desire of the world, of wanting this precious gems among us. 
Luxury, is a need that some people consider vital because they can see beyond the look, considering all the significant details in every operation. First you look for it everywhere, it doesn’t matter if it makes no sense at all where you may find it, your goal is to get it right and be able to manipulate it. We can´t complain if we can or can´t get it, because it sure is a pleasure of life, but sometimes it becomes an addiction, a need that maybe doesn’t belong to us. And sometimes it is something we should have, something that should be for everyone but some can’t afford it.
It is unfair, maybe. Some people may have them right around the corner and jet never be able to find it, and come others may just need a little bit of luck and a whole lot of hope.
