BUT WAIT! There's more!.....

If it is too far to drive to get that diamond, just settle back in your chair and wait 7 billion more years and our OWN SUN willl also be a huge diamond and its only about 8 Light Minutes away!!!.....Of course it has been heated and irradiated so such treatment should be mentioned.
:roll:

dang, I didnt think it would have been that quick of an answer for BMP 37093.

Oh well, Guess I was the only one who got stumped this time.

I just want to know how Debeers plans to get it in their vault?

And where do you find a setting for something like that, or our post toasty sun?
