Diamonds

Sourced from Wikipedia.org
Just looking for random content to give Google something to look at. Here is a short piece about diamonds. Again this is just testing the accuracy capabilities of Google Adsense.
Diamond is one of the two best known forms (or allotropes) of carbon, whose hardness and high dispersion of light makes it useful for industrial applications and jewelery. The other equally well known allotrope is graphite;but diamonds are specifically renowned as a mineral with superlative physical qualities. They make excellent abrasives because they can only be scratched by other diamonds, which also means they hold a polish extremely well and retain luster. About 130 million carats (26,000 kg) are mined annually, with a total value of nearly 9 billion US$.
