Diamond cutting. Worker at a diamond cutting and polishing workshop. Here he is inspecting a diamond (not seen) that he is in the process of cutting. Diamonds are a hard crystalline form of carbon that are used in jewellery, and in industry as a material for cutting tools. They occur naturally in rough (un-cut) forms. These raw diamonds are then cut into different shapes and polished, to give different effects when mounted in jewellery. Photographed in Israel.
