Web Desk: The core of earth is filled with countless natural resources, many of the things we have already explored but still the earth has not been empty. There are over quadrillion tones of diamond hidden in the Earth’s interior.
MIT revealed that the Earth’s interior is loaded with a diamond rush. The scientists have come to a conclusion that the precious minerals are buried more than 100 miles from the surface, way deeper than any drilling expedition ever conducted.
It is claimed that these diamonds may be scattered within the cratonic roots, most of lying in the centre of the most continental tectonic plates. The shapes of diamonds are like inverted mountains that can stretch as deep as 200 miles through the crust.
The deepest part of the earth core, the root, may have 1-2 % of diamonds. According to the research scientists, ‘We can’t get at them, but still, there is much more diamond there than we have ever thought before.’
