For weeks this autumn, every clear evening has been graced with a bright and beautiful Jupiter, rising in the eastern sky. Apparently conditions on this gaseous planet are just right for crushing carbon in such a way as to produce diamonds – and plenty of them. Scientists are speculating that Jupiter, and another gaseous planet Saturn, have innumerable diamonds floating around them. The New Scientist suggests that all gas giants in our solar system could be ‘littered with bling’. Tiffany – eat your heart out.
For great gems a little closer to home, pop in to see us for a browse and a chat. Despite the end-of-term feeling, we’ve got some hot new properties coming on, and there’s mince pies, mulled wine and a lucky dip on tap throughout the month of December. Happy Christmas from the Crayson team.
