A Bling Planet

A recent discovery of a small planet 4,000 light years away, or around an eighth of the way toward the center of the Milky Way from the Earth. Because of the density of the planet and largely consists of carbon, scientists calculate the carbon must be crystalline. So a large part of this strange world will effectively be diamond!! Hooray!!
