Caption: Diamond. Molecular graphic of diamond, the hardest naturally occurring substance known to man. Carbon atoms are represented by blue spheres. Diamond is an allotrope of carbon; the other common natural allotrope is graphite. In diamond each carbon atom can be thought of as at the centre of a tetrahedron, linked to atoms at the four corners of the tetrahedron by covalent bonds. Because this repeating tetrahedral structure allows no rotation about bonds it is completely rigid, giving diamond its unique strength. As well as being a valuable gemstone, diamond is used in industry to tip
