Diamonds are a geoscientist’s best friend — this is especially true for a group of researchers who recently found hard evidence that water exists deep within Earth’s mantle by examining diamonds from around the world.
The team, led by University of Nevada, Las Vegas geoscientist Oliver Tschauner, found inclusions of the high-pressure form of water called Ice-VII in natural diamonds sourced from between 255 and 410 miles (410-660 km) depth.
Scientists have stumbled upon an entirely new type of water that they are calling Ice-VII, and they believe it is being caused by diamonds deep in the crust of the Earth. The extraordinary discovery could change our understanding of fluid pockets that reside hundreds of miles below the surface of the Earth.
