A planet made of diamonds?

The crown jewels or the Hope Diamond won’t compare to this sparkle in the sky. A new planet has been discovered that consists of mostly graphite and diamond, and is twice the size of the earth: planet 55 Cancri e.  But Tiffany won’t be getting its hands on this one any time soon, being 40 light-years away. Until we’re able to reach the outer galaxies of earth, here are some dazzling gems that sparkle just as bright. And if you’re interested on reading more about this diamond planet then visit the National Geographic.
