This planet is dubbed 55 Cancri e (the Diamond planet), it is only a mere 40 light years away from earth… It’s mostly Graphite covered with a thick layer of “Diamond” Thats right
Diamonds!
I am sure when we have the tech to travel at light speed and can brave the surface temperature of 3,900 Fahrenheit we earthlings will plunder the planet Diamond free!

There are more diamonds in earth than Sapphires and rubies, but Diamond demand is still high, due to price control. Just imagine if we were to reach Cancri e we could pave all the streets of the world with diamonds 🙂
