In the introduction, please add brackets around the word "crystal structure" because it's a very relevant link to this topic. (talk) 20:23, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

burn ?Edit

I've tried to find info on this in the article. Can't find it. Carbon is burnable, so what about diamonds ? (I assume they don't melt and boil) Boeing720 (talk) 10:10, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

@Boeing720: Have a look at the section on chemical stability. RockMagnetist (DCO visiting scholar) (talk) 18:40, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. But I was thinking what happens with diamonds in case of fire. Would a diamond burn if put into the flame of a regular lighter, or only if the flame is extremely hot ? Boeing720 (talk) 20:50, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Good question! I have added some material to the section. RockMagnetist (DCO visiting scholar) (talk) 17:07, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

could the diamond page be added to the mineral category? Lopendwiki (talk) 14:17, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

  Not done. Pages in Category:Minerals should be put in subcategories if possible. This one is part of Category:Diamond, a subcategory.  Ganbaruby! (Say hi!) 15:02, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
