Diamond Planet?!? First one there wins!

Aug 26, 2011

An exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard in an undated image courtesy of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

An article released yesterday describes the discovery of a new planet. However, this planet is significantly different from those discovered in the past (Click here to read the article). The reason is that this planet is extremely dense and consists of mostly carbon. Why does this matter? Carbon is the key ingredient in diamonds. So as the article suggests, there is a giant diamond circling Earth! Who wants to race to get their hands on this one?

Not only did we want to share this article with you but remind you that we are happy to evaluate any diamond, regardless of whether or not it is the size of a planet or significantly smaller. Please click here to schedule an appointment to visit us in either our two convenient locations in Washington D.C. and Baltimore, MD.

To those of you on the East Coast please stay safe this weekend and out of Irene’s way.
