A battered diamond that survived a trip from "hell" confirms a long-held theory: Earth's mantle holds an ocean's worth of water.
"It's actually the confirmation that there is a very, very large amount of water that's trapped in a really distinct layer in the deep Earth," said Graham Pearson, lead study author and a geochemist at the University of Alberta in Canada. The findings were published today (March 12) in the journal Nature.
The worthless-looking diamond encloses a tiny piece of an olivine mineral called ringwoodite, and it's the first time the mineral has been found on Earth's surface in anything other than meteorites or laboratories. Ringwoodite only forms under extreme pressure, such as the crushing load about 320 miles (515 kilometers) deep in the mantle.

Very interesting! it reminds me of the water found beneath the seas also, what a wet planet!


Scientists have discovered huge reserves of freshwater beneath the oceans kilometers out to sea, providing new opportunities to stave off a looming global water crisis. A new study reveals that an estimated half a million cubic kilometers of low-salinity water are buried beneath the seabed on continental shelves around the world.

Nice find. It's how I feel about Mars. The probability of massive amounts of water beneath the surface, just got a little more real for me.

and some say there is not enough water on the planet to cover the earth

17Then the flood came upon the earth for forty days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose above the earth. 18The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered.…

Seems science was wrong....again

Or we find out the earth is 70% made of water .

If you look down on your link there is a diagram that shows something called a Kimberlite . These are where diamonds are mined from .There was a big one found in the Arctic ocean and they built a big dam around it and pumped the water out of it and mine diamonds .There is a Hugh one over in Africa . Its hard to say just how they were formed but they are saturated with diamonds .They may have been the source for the diamonds we find scattered in different places on the earth ....peace

Well Please do educate me.
For as I believe The Earths Core to consist of Iron.
Molten or not, in one form or another.

I'm not so keen on the Mathematics here.
Ages ago a deep aquifer under immense pressure
could have existed, and alarmingly, might still exist.

An ocean core? The laws of electromagnetism relating to
The Earths Magnetic Field and repulsion of Solar Radiation
would have to be completely re evaluated.

Then also, there are the gifted bird creatures that navigate
thousands of miles with a better success rate than my neighbors
"Jane and John" in their Audi with a GPS.

Hey, Anythings possible, but not always probable.

When I can Charter a Love Boat and take You All on a
Fishing Trip to "The Center of The Earth" ,
where we can have a Grand Old Roman Style Orgie,
while eating freshly caught Mastadoninian Swordfish,

That is the moment when I will be On Board.

Funny how someone is refuting the theory of an ocean of water existing in the mantle, by reminding us that the core is iron.

Seriously?!

S&F to OP & all replies except that retarded one =D

Yes , it is humorous.
Specifically that theory would change the necessary
gravity and prevent us from keeping our feet firmly
planted on the ground.

We surely should know better.

Especially us Gardeners.

Whoops !
I was mistaken. The article did Clearly state The Mantle, not The Core.
Gardener was correct,that was "Retarded' of me.

Sorry O.P.. I was not paying attention to detail.

I love searching for different gems so this is really fascinating to me. Looks like a bit of gold on there are well? I hope this doesn't prompt some rich hoot to go inventing a way to get there to mine. Of course - it will happen eventually - until the earth looks like Swiss cheese.

and some say there is not enough water on the planet to cover the earth
Interesting. Let's check. The article says:

"It translates into a very, very large mass of water, approaching the sort of mass of water that's present in all the world's ocean," Pearson told Live Science's Our Amazing Planet.


The Earth's oceans contain a volume of about 1,348,400,000 cubic kilometers of water. The Earth's surface is about 510,072,000 square kilometers. Spread that additional amount of water over the Earth's surface and you would raise sea level by about 2.6 kilometers.

There is a great deal of land on Earth which is more that 2.6 km above sea level. So, if that much water really is there (not certain) and if it were brought to the surface (somehow), it would indeed cover much land area. But not Tibet, not the central Andes, not the Greenland or Antarctic ice sheets, not the region around Turkey. A lot of land left uncovered and a whole lot of mountain peaks.

Himalayas, Andes, Turkey... those ring a bell somehow

oh yea.. ancient civilizations/cities:

Himalayas - Brahmaputra/Armagadha

Andes - Caral (oldest known civilization in all of the Americas!)

Turkey - pre-Sumer!!

Now the only thing missing is evidence of a global flood.
