							Diamond is one of the hardest substances known and is formed under extremely high pressure from other carbon forms. Naturally occurring diamonds are used for jewelry while synthetic diamonds are used for abrasives for polishing and cutting. Carbon can form more compounds than any other elements through endless chains of carbon-carbon bonds and is the basis for organic chemistry. Large soccer ball-shaped molecules consisting of 60-70 carbon atoms are known as buckminsterfullerenes were discovered several years ago and have many unusual properties.
