Diamond is a form of carbon. They form when carbon is placed under great pressure and heat for millions of years. They formed in the early period of Earth's geologic history and are still forming today. They are mined, although it is possible for humans to create them. Diamonds created artificially are expensive but have specific optical or industrial uses.
