If a recently declassified report can be believed, Russian scientists claim that a meteorite crater in Siberia is awash in “trillions of carats” of diamonds. Whether or not the assertion can be believed, the idea of a meteorite crashing to earth and creating diamonds gives us something to think about concerning why diamonds are so special. These so-called “impact diamonds” help demonstrate what kind of enormous pressure and heat are necessary to create the hardest natural substance on earth. As carbon deposits are pressurized under enormous heat below the earth’s surface, they form the substance that has the like a diamond in the sky potential to create such sparkle. In the case of impact diamonds, they may actually emanate from the heavens above. Diamonds are the perfect accessory for any outfit; you will radiate a timeless elegance.
