Universe is such a place where everything is possible, do u know that nearly 4 billion years from now are sun will be converted into a big diamond as big as jupiter,in stellar study there is a limit which is called chandras limit,if the star mass is less than 1.4 solar masses than after the fuel ends the remenants are the core of star which is of carbon and under the pressure of the core the carbon is converted into diamond,isnt that excited that we have so many big diamonds in our backyard......................................

Although the prospects of having something next to me which is so grand and thrilling, the idea of having something so heavy on my finger is daunting. Do you think it is a process like iron changing to rust that is like a science experiment or is it more like a cycle that would continue on forever but the change of hydrogen to hellium then to carbon is something that exists in the universe to say this is for but a time?

The stars which are massive than 1.4 solarmasses turn into blackhole or neutron stars,in them when hydrogen finishes than the star dosent have any source which can give an outward force against gravity so that star can not collapse but because stars collapse after hydrogen finishes the preassure and temperature increases due to which helium also fuses to form carbon and this cycle continues till iron,after than the star continusely collapse to form such a dense core which could be blackhole or neutron star... But the stars below 1.4 solarmasses doesnt collapse after carbon because there not too much gravity which could continue the collapse so with what we are left is pressureised carbon(diamond)........................

I wonder if anyone has seen a massive diamond? What would it look like I wonder in the sky maybe someone has and gave it a name like Judy. Or if a star had run into something shattered into little pieces. I think we see the remains of stars that have collapsed and exploded which we call going super nova but I don't think anyone has seen a blackhole and it remains somewhat of a mystery or theory, which is still is very interesting.
