In 2004, astronomers discovered a star composed entirely of #diamond, measuring 4,000 km across and 10 billion trillion trillion carats. 50 light years from Earth, the #diamond #star is classified as a crystallized white dwarf, the hot core that remains after a star burns out. Only recently have scientists been able to study the contents of the white dwarf, and they’ve confirmed that the crystallized carbon interior of the star is, in fact, the galaxy’s largest diamond.
