      Toasty Thursday

Diamonds.. She will pretty much have to.......

Diamonds are forever

Alright, just kidding! :) Just to cheer you up this Thursday.

But hey, diamonds might just become so common that they'll be pretty much worthless! Thats possible if you take into account the recent major breakthrough in producing diamonds in labs. A 10 carat, half inch thick single crystal diamond was made, at a rapid growth rate like 100 micrometeres per hr, by the chemical vapor deposition process at the Carnegie Institution’s Geophysical Laboratory. The goal: A 300 carat beast in whatever shape they want.

Oh well, these are still nowhere in comparison to the largest diamond ever.
