Muy bueno. Tequila, es una diamente... muy diamente!: "Apátiga, a member of the team, brought a bottle of cheap tequila into the lab to see if it could be turned into diamond. When he heated a shot to 800C it vaporised and broke down into its atomic constituents, producing a fine layer of carbon on nearby metal trays. Close examination of the films at high magnification revealed that the carbon had formed into crystal structures identical to diamond. Each was around one thousandth of a millimetre across."

On the downside, you're ruining perfectly good tequila. On the upside, hey: cheap microdiamonds.
