This makes me wonder what the moon is "really" composed of. If the moon has diamonds, the diamond industry would just completely die.

Actually, guys, diamonds aren't that rare.
What keeps the price inflated is the deBeers diamond cartel (my parents were jewelers and discussed this with me.) It's similar to OPEC, in that they own the largest supply and if the price of diamonds drops, they just slow production or refuse to sell them at the reduced price.
And yes, the moon and other planets "ring" when hit with meteorites and so forth.
