Looks kinda fake to me. I would love to have that made into a ring, though!

The moon (our moon) rings like a gong/bell when struck.
This makes me wonder what the moon is "really" composed of. If the moon has diamonds, the diamond industry would just completely die.

its real, at least thats what they tell us. its also bin discussed. alot.
heres one
our sun is supposed to do that 2 billion yrs after it gets the finger, which is abotu 5 billion yrs from now.

and darklanser? if they found the moon was made of diamond (its not) the market wud implode, too much supply. im pretty sure the moon 'bounces' the sound because its a solid object, like everything else.
the diamond rain on neptune

DarkHelmet, just by owning a diamond 1 kilometer across would completely upset the diamond market and send it crashing, making diamonds worth about as much as cubic zirconium. Probably not badly but you would not make that much money off of it. Not to mention if it is in poor quality, color, clarity...

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.
