Re: Trillions of carats of asteroid impact diamonds in Russia

Synthetic diamonds are equally real... and their properties can be far superior to 'regular diamonds' (higher quality, fewer impurities - patented for creating synthetic diamond semiconductors too in 1996 along with manufacturing techniques - just never occurred in practice - could have used them since then in electronics and vastly improve computers from the get go - oh but wait... that would actually be sensible approach compared to using 'cheap' materials such as silicon).

Ultimately, both are nothing more than pressurized carbons which is the second most abundant material in the universe (this planet included).

But seeing the world we actually live in, its no wonder brainwashed general folk would go along with what DeBeers says.
