At a Glance

Diamonds are not native to the Earth’s surface. Their primary source is beneath very old continental interiors in the upper mantle at depths of nearly 100 miles and temperatures of 1832°F, and they were delivered to the Earth’s surface by deep-seated, very fast volcanic eruptions. Join Geology Professor Brian Williams to study how diamonds are formed, where to find them and what we mean when we say “diamonds are forever.”
