Scientists have found a treasure trove of "super-deep" diamonds hundreds of miles below the surface.
The diamonds were found in the Juina region of Brazil and probably come from a depth of 255 to 410 miles, according to an international research team. A volcanic eruption brought the rocks to the surface, reports The Independent.
