Get your tickets here for a heavenly trip to the most magical and mythical destination ever: a planet made of diamonds. Well, before you pack your bags, you may want to know that there isn’t any oxygen on the Planet of Diamonds…but hey, a small price to pay right? The amount of diamond will leave you breathless anyway.
Scientists have discovered a planet that they believe is composed mostly of carbon, and is one-third pure diamond! Discovered in 2004, the planet orbits a nearby star in the Milky Way, and is named “55 Cancri e” (which, in our opinion, is not a sufficiently glamorous name for such an extraordinary planet). Perhaps even more amazing, scientists have discovered a star that is essentially a diamond of ten billion trillion trillion carats. They named the star Lucy after the Beatles song “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
While our custom design abilities are out of this world, extracting diamond from this planet may be a little out of our skillset!
