A research group has developed the thinnest possible electrical wires, with a size of just three atoms wide using fragments of molecule-sized diamonds, the smallest diamonds we have.
Diamonds come into play to create ultra-thin electrical wires.
The world’s biggest diamonds are by far the most prized and most valuable of gemstones. Coincidentally, these rare and large diamonds also hold valuable scientific data that could reveal detailed information about the earth according to diamond geologist of the Gemological Institute of America, Even Smith.
The extremely rare violet diamond unearthed at the Argyle mine is said to be one of the rarest gems on Earth.
Diamonds may form under a much simpler process involving natural pH changes, making them less rare than we once thought.
Early gold and oil prospectors had their divining rods, and even truffle hunters had their pigs. Now a strange and spiny plant may be the first natural tool that can help experts sniff out diamonds in the ground - a first for the botanical world.
