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.

Mar 12, 2018

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.

Mar 12, 2018

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.

A team of researchers has discovered ice crystals in a diamond. Probably not a huge discovery, you may think, but this ice, names Ice-VII, is coming from the Earth’s mantle and has been supposed, until now, that it only naturally exists on other planets and their moons and can only be made in a lab.

A new form of water ice was recently discovered, trapped inside diamonds found deep beneath the Earth’s crust. This new finding, researchers noted, marks the first time the substance known as ice-VII was found to naturally occur on our planet.

The discovery of Ice VII in mantle diamonds suggests the possibility of the Earth having water pockets in the mantle. What could this mean, and why is this important?
