+ - Diamonds Discovered In Candlelight->

Submitted by

jkcity writes "It is being reported that a team of researchers has discovered that every second millions of tiny nano diamonds are created and burned as a candle burns and have concluded that this is what gives a candle its sparkly burn. They talk about trying to find a method of trying to extract the diamonds. Intrestingly though the BBC has recently posted a video of them making diamonds using a blowtorch so it seems to me its probably been known about these nano diamonds for a while and the research team just discovered the already known."
