This makes me think of something I've been wondering about-- have any micro
diamond been found in lunar materisl (either meteoritic or Apollo)? Since some
large, high-speed impacts on Earth create diamonds, I'd think that they would
occur much more often on the moon, where every impact is a high-speed one.
