How long does it take to grow fine gems? Well, it’s believed that large crystals take a very long time. But a recent study found that these crystals don’t take long ages … they can grow within minutes to hours!
It doesn’t require long ages—it just takes the right conditions. And the conditions would’ve been perfect during the global flood. This catastrophe was unlike anything scientists have witnessed. But a watery catastrophe provides the right conditions for the rapid formation of gems, rock layers, fossils, and more!
Slow and gradual processes do not explain the world around us. A young earth and a catastrophic flood do!
