The most famous gems on Earth have new competition in the form of a planet made largely of diamond, astronomers say. At least a third of the planet's mass is likely pure diamond.

The alien planet, a so-called "super-Earth," is called 55 Cancri e and was discovered in 2004 around a nearby star in our Milky Way galaxy. After estimating the planet's mass and radius, and studying its host star's composition, scientists now say the rocky world is composed mainly of carbon (in the form of diamond and graphite), as well as iron, silicon carbide, and potentially silicates.

"This is our first glimpse of a rocky world with a fundamentally different chemistry from Earth," lead researcher Nikku Madhusudhan of Yale University said in a statement. "The surface of this planet is likely covered in graphite and diamond rather than water and granite."

Corporations have made note, so that once the time comes, they will strike out to that planet to try and immediately get a hold of claiming it.

The universe is full of very interesting things, no doubt.

Like intelligent life? This planet seems too hot, but on another planet? Do you think it's possible?

Then there's little doubt that this planet IS only inhabited by women.
