Start digging, there could be a quadrillion tons of diamonds underground

В Земле нашли квадриллион тонн алмазов

A new study conducted by researchers revealed a quadrillion tons of diamonds lying deep below the surface of our planet. The result was diamonds. They can be likened to inverted mountains and can go as deep as 200 miles, says MIT.

The study estimates 1-2 percent of the cratonic roots may be filled with diamonds.

"We can't get at them, but still, there is much more diamond there than we have ever thought before", Dr Faul said.

The study also included researchers from various national and global institutions, including the University of California at Berkeley, Harvard University, the University of Melbourne and the University of Science and Technology of China, among others. China, Bayreuth University, University of Melbourne and University College London. Various speeds and intensities that geography can use to determine the origin of an quake bring sounds from these sources from around the world. These waves are caused by different ground-shaking forces. Scientists use the relationship between quake, vibration, and rock formations. Craton is denser and denser than the occult around the planets, and produces sounds that are quite fast.

But what is a "cratonic root"? Seismic data can also be used to effectively see inside Earth, similar to an ultrasound scan.

The project to uncover deep Earth diamonds began because scientists were puzzled by observations that sound waves would speed up significantly when passing through the roots of ancient cratons.

The findings would mean diamonds are about 1,000 times more common that previously thought.

Diamonds have always had the power to capture humans' imagination, being the subject of desire of many.

"One of its special properties is, the sound velocity in diamond is more than twice as fast as in the dominant mineral in upper mantle rocks, olivine". By looking at the speed of movement of these waves, the researchers are able to name the type of rock that the waves are going through.

In the present moment, we do not have the necessary technology to reach that deep into the Earth. That's how they protect the oldest rocks.

Scientists have found in the center of the Earth a huge amount of diamonds.

To some extent, Faul said that the craton root made of diamonds makes sense.

Diamonds are formed under high-pressure and extreme temperatures. These volcanoes erupted with a geological "pipeline" made of rock called kimberlite (named after the town of Kimberley, South Africa, where the first diamond in the rock was found).
