Lonsdaleite


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys-

Was reading through a Popular Science magazine yesterday and came across an article about a mineral called Lonsdaleite. This is the first I had heard of this. Created in meteorites that contain graphite like Canyon Diablo. Same composition as diamond but different crystal structure.
