Have you ever seen a diamond? Have you ever wondered where it came from? The story of how diamonds form will take you on a tour of the Earth. You will zoom in to the atomic scale to see how atoms bond, dive into the Earth’s mantle to explore how temperature and pressure change, and get carried back up to the surface in a special volcanic eruption.
All of this is real, cutting-edge science, written at a level that kids can read and understand. The text is supplemented with interesting illustrations and photographs to make the science more vivid, appropriate for both standard Kindle and tablet formats. At the end of the book you will find a self-quiz to test your new knowledge, additional activities that build on the science, and a glossary for the scientific terms used in the book.
