    the melting point of graphite is 3652 - 3697 degrees Celsius. over a hundred degrees higher than that of a diamond.

    Doesn't it 'disassociate' and turn into power rather than 'melt'? or are those considered the same thing in chemistry?
    Of all the wonders in the universe, none is likely more fascinating and complicated than human nature.

    "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."

    "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence"

    You mus apply pressure:

    from wiki; Carbon:



    The diagream that wiki extracts from is more interesting. See figure 1 of On Graphite Transformations at High Temperature and Pressure Induced by Absorption of the LHC Beam for a better graph.
