The Diamond (carbon) is a very common mineral. Carbon atoms, which exist plentiful below earth zone, are compressed under high pressure with very high temperature to very closed packed cubic system arrangement. Carbon (graphite) is one of the softest minerals before it is compressed under heat.It exits trough Vulcan's, cracks and pipes in earth-zone. After cooling down is crystallize to the cubic system. Diamond deposits are found in the ground within rocks and or near riverbeds, banks and terraces (alluvial). Deposits are on all continents found.
