Geologic, microstructural, and spectroscopic constraints on the origin and history of carbonado diamond
Carbonado is a form of polycrystalline diamond found in placer deposits in South America and Central Africa, and is one of the toughest known materials. The source rock for carbonado is unknown, and it has unusual porosity, textural features, and inclusion mineralogy. These have lead to a wide variety of theories on the genesis of carbonado. The tightly bound, interlocking microtexture of diamond makes it difficult to study, and only one previous study has been done on polished...[Show more]
