Real Diamonds Can Be Made from Peanut Butter

July 25, 2010

I just posted “? of the Day” and the fact is that real diamonds can be made from peanut butter. If you’re shocked right now, you’re not the only one. It is interesting so I decided to look into it :

The formation of a natural diamond requires very specific conditions, like exposure of carbon-bearing materials to high pressure, ranging approximately between 45 and 60 kilobars, but a comparatively low temperature range between approximately 1600-2370F (900-1300C). These conditions are known to be met in two places on Earth: the litospheric mantle below relatively stable continental plates, and at the site of a meteorite impact.

Can you believe it the worlds most expensive gem can be formed with peanut butter?!
