Diamond is the only gem made of a single element: It is about 99.95 percent carbon. The chemical formula of diamond is C and it is the chemical symbol for the element carbon.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. However, the creation of the diamond may be less than glamorous. It is made of carbon. When carbon begins to crystalize, the diamond is about to be born. Graphite is also a part of the making of the diamond because it is associated with carbon.

Unlike diamonds that are considered to be precious, carbon is actually abundant in the Earth. Graphite also is used to make the lead in pencils.

Carbon is also used to make different types of textiles. It is difficult to believe that diamonds and cotton actually come from the same element in the ground. Also, silk, hemp, and cashmere are also made from carbon polymers. Then these things are turned into clothing.
