Diamond in the rough

An image I started working on in March/April. I've been staring myself blind on it now and would love to hear a second opinion. Any thoughts on improvements, composition or technique?

What comes to your mind when you see it?

its a very cool work, but if its diamond, it won't reflect like this. For the study, of such, I can render you a diamond with the background of such behind it... if you wish.

My first thought was that I'd rather see a rough diamond than one that is cut. #personalpreference

I don't have any other helpful suggestions, so I hope that was one. Have a nice day.

Jag tycker om bilden, men diamanten ser inte riktigt ut som en diamant, utan snarare som en plastreplika. Det vore ju snyggt om du fick till diamant-känslan också.

Money may not grow on trees, but diamonds do fall from the sky!

This makes me think of a fallen shooting star. Now you know why they sparkle!

Ok, so my personal complaint, there are some cheesy looking sunbeams, in the upper left third, as well as the diamond looks kinda plasticky.  I find those distracting.  Not trying to sound mean at all, I love it!  Just what I think could make it better.  Good Job :)
