Star BPM 37093

According to those that keep track of such things, 10 years is the appropriate anniversary for diamonds in the modern era. So, just to help out any of our faithful caffiends looking for a last-minute anniversary gift, I give you this:

The Mother of All Diamonds, Star BPM 37093. Located a mere 54 light-years away in the Centaurus constellation,

“The interior of this probably very old white dwarf is a diamond with a diameter of more than 4000 kilometers.”
