Researchers analyze diamond chunks to better understand deep Earth

In a bid to better understand the extreme depths of Earth, a diamond geologist and colleagues at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) cracked open and analyzed tiny chunks and scraps leftover from some of the world’s biggest diamonds.

The researchers led by diamond geologist Evan Smith got the GIA to acquire eight fingernail-sized chunks of those big, expensive diamonds. The chunks were leftover from big diamonds when the rough diamonds were cut into glistening jewels.
