Diamonds are made of highly organized carbon.
It is created in the depths of the earth, roughly 200-250 kilometers below ground.
For a diamond to form, it must be extremely hot (1,000-1,200 degrees Celsius) and there must be immense pressure (roughly 60 thousand atmospheres).
Once created, the diamond is the strongest substance on earth, capable of scratching any other material, without enduring a single scratch itself.
This, by the way, is a wonderful tip for identifying fake diamonds.
Real diamonds will never become scratched.
