Super-hard precious stones are forever

No, but thanks for asking.

As Phillip Blanchard so gently put it, this one has it all:

Diamonds are forever, unless you’re on Saturn or Jupiter. Loads of the super-hard precious stones may be floating among the gas giants’ fluid layers and melted into liquid further into their depths, say a pair of planetary scientists.

It'd be nice to think this was a one-off, but apparently at Science Now, you can't do The Science without a little of The Stupid. Crsly!

I'd weep for the planet, but on the bright side, we're not overrun by intergalactic prospectors.
