Well, diamonds are hard minerals, and if they are used in a drill, it could help with the power given and make the course, and power of the drill increase. Diamonds are minerals and they are found in South Africa. You dig them up and they are contained in a rock called "kimberlite" after that you give the shape, size and polish the diamond. They may use them for other things, not only jewelry. They are also used in: Telecommunication, rock drill bit, mine shack.....

This information is true, i will post more soon! ;)
