Jump to: navigation, search

Diamond is a crystal consisting of carbon atoms linked tetrahedrally to one another. In diamond, each carbon atom is linked to four others, which is what gives diamond its incredible hardness. Diamond is the hardest naturally occurring substance on earth, and it has various practical applications (such as cutting tools). Diamonds are highly prized in the Western world and are often used in luxury items, such as wedding rings.
