  1. Diamonds are made up of coal

We are sure that you must have seen some quotes that say diamonds are made from coal. One of them is, “Do not be scared of pressure. Pressure is what transforms coal into a diamond”.  Well, don’t believe this. It isn’t true. Diamonds are formed when carbon goes through an extremely high heat and pressure below the surface.
