Random thought popped into my little brian: How does diamond handle temperature compared to other metals? I apologize asking for a spoon feeding. But I looked up diamond wiki and a couple other sites, and I quickly realized it would take me a few days to go through all the vocabulary I don't know yet.
Casts fishing rod....
Oh, as in 'slab', I mean, I plan to have diamond floors throughout my house in the future. Wanted to know if I would need slippers or not during winter.edit on 9-18-13 by Mugen because: (no reason given)
Diamond is "a metastable allotrope of carbon," not a metal. And it doesn't ever show up in large enough size and quantity to become "slab."

Since neither will burn in Minecraft (the only environment known to man where you can make blocks of diamond), I am not sure it matters.
There are elements that we likely cannot create here on Earth (see: Stealth Paint for an exmaple). But leaving this solar system in my lifetime is likely to not happen.
As best as I know it would respond similar to granite, or slate. But I have no proof of this. If you are willing to indulge my opinion, I would say it's cool in summer and probably chilly but not freezing in winter.
