Did you know that diamonds have i been found by people who thought they were only pretty stones or "pebbles" because there was no sparkle to them? Diamonds were j first discovered in India about '2,500 years ago. DONALD DUCK By Walt Disney FOR? ONCE I'M FAINTING} j A FLOOF?

When NAP refers to taking a short snooze or lust plain dozing at the desk, it originates with an old Anglo-Saxon word, HNAEPPIAN, "to sleep lightly." *•« ftSS-:^^ All the diamonds thai exist today or that man is likely to find were created about a hundred mil- hion years ago. The earth was then | in its early cooling stages. Beneath jthe ground there was a mass of | hoi liquid rock which was subjected to extreme heat and diamond has 58 facets! The next step is the polishing of the diamond. How does this make a diamond sparkle the way it does? The reason is that a diamond has a very high refractive power. This means it bends the light that enters it more than ordinary substances do. By cutting a diamond to the proper proportions and having all those little windows for the light to enter (he stone—a greater amount of light comes out of the diamond and makes it. more brilliant and sparkling to our eyes. If the diamond didn't have I his special ability to bend light the way it does, wouldn't sparkle. Each facet ol the diamond acts as a prism, i breaking up the white light into the colors of the spectrum—which is why we see red and violet light .'BUT WATCH YOUR STEP/ DUMBO.'

A diamond is simply highly crystallized carbon. Coal, and the lead in your pencil are also carbon—but a diamond is carbon that was subjected to this great heal and pressure so that it became crystallized. A diamond is the hardest substance known, so it can't be worn down by ordinary use. When a diamond cpmes from the mine, it usually • is somewhat rounded and has a greasy look. Man lakes over from nature at this point, and by "cleaving" (breaking it into large pieces), (.•lilting it, and then polishing it, and then polishing it—makes it into the brilliant, sparkling stone that is so beautiful and so valuable. The purpose of cleaving a diamond is to obtain the largest perfect stone possible, and to remove any portions of the diamond that may contain flaws or defects. The purpose of "cutting" a' diamond is to put little faces or facets" on the stone. It is these facets that bring out the brilliancy of a diamond, and the average in a diamond and say it has "fire!"
