Diamonds in the sky...

Recent scientific discoveries have hinted at the fact that the atmosphere of Jupiter and Saturn may contain more than just gasses - indeed, deep down floating in a helium/hydrogen fluid, it is now thought there may be a sizeable number of diamonds. Some are so huge that they're being described as 'diamondbergs'!

Deeper still and it's thought that the intense atmospheric pressure might be enough to actually melt the diamonds creating what can only be described as a 'diamond rain'.
