No. Carbon as only itself exists in the shape of normal carbon (no crystal structure), graphite( hexagonal crystal structure of carbon with 3 bonds), diamond (cubical crystal structure of carbon with 4 bonds), fuleren - nanotubes and lonsdaleite( hexagonal crystal structure of carbon with 4 bonds).
