Did none of you watch the Modern Marvels on History channel about diamonds? That last little snippet I think talked about micro diamonds from space...the guy had a whole vial full of them..they were itty bitty though..real itty bitty



I didn't watch that, but there was a show involving a new theory that all of the mega-fauna and even the Clovis people were actually wiped out by a comet/asteroid that hit the ice sheet up in Canada. They also used the micro diamonds as part of their theory. It was very interesting.

Years ago i saw a 36" diamond saw get pinched by a large ( 20mm?) black diamond crystal at Bob Haags's place while slabbing a very large pallasite from Argentina.

It took the boys several hours to free the saw- the blade tried to go around the diamond and the saw became locked.

After they got the blade free, they came in from the other side with a small offset and the diamond was revealed.

The meteorite was full of gemmy olivine- i would have called it peridot.

interesting find
