Affordable diamond soon......

Diamond is women's best friend. Good news to all the gentlemen! You need not fear to buy those five carats diamond to the darlings you love most, because diamond is going to be cheap and affordable. Reason... please read on yourself.

Reuters reported Astronomers discover planet of diamond.

Astronomers have spotted an exotic planet that seems to be made of diamond racing around a tiny star in our galactic backyard.

The new planet is far denser than any other known so far and consists largely of carbon. Because it is so dense, scientists calculate the carbon must be crystalline, so a large part of this strange world will effectively be diamond.

"The evolutionary history and amazing density of the planet all suggest it is comprised of carbon -- i.e. a massive diamond orbiting a neutron star every two hours in an orbit so tight it would fit inside our own Sun," said Matthew Bailes of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

Lying 4,000 light years away, or around an eighth of the way towards the centre of the Milky Way from the Earth, the planet is probably the remnant of a once-massive star that has lost its outer layers to the so-called pulsar star it orbits.

So be patience gentlemen! Let us reach this so called planet of diamond first.
