High pressure and extreme temperature became normal.
And we went under earth.
And we went digging and digging,
And when I almost was ready to give up right there, deep underground Hard rock under extreme pressure and extreme high temperature transformed into a diamond.

After tiffany it is not all in greenish blue.
And that is how I know we have a chance to find more of those precious stones.
