Think about it, lets say diamonds didnt exist at all, well lasers cut right? and that only took us (current humans) about a 100 years to master. 100 years, now in a thousand , few thousand, maybe a million. im pretty sure we are going to upgrade lasers to , maybe using the suns plasma to cut... WHO KNOWS but again remember diamonds are an element , that currently we value highly..only until we find something better.
