This is all I could find:
"Is It Raining Diamonds On Uranus"
If experiments at the University of California, Berkeley, are any indication, future explorers of our solar system may well find diamonds hailing down
through the atmospheres of Neptune and Uranus.
These planets contain a high proportion of methane, which UC Berkeley researchers have now shown can turn into diamond at the high temperatures and
pressures found inside these planets.
"Once these diamonds form, they fall like raindrops or hailstones toward the center of the planet," said Laura Robin Benedetti, a graduate student in
physics at UC Berkeley.
The team, led by Benedetti and Raymond Jeanloz, professor of geology and geophysics, produced these conditions inside a diamond anvil cell, squeezing
liquid methane to several hundred thousand times atmospheric pressure. When they focused a laser beam on the pressurized liquid, heating it to some
5,000 degrees Fahrenheit, diamond dust appeared.
It seems to be less Armageddon-ish than your email makes it out to be.
