I love tequila!

Mexican scientists have turned the country’s national tipple tequila into diamonds, and are seeking applications for their discovery – but the crystals are too small to be used in jewellery.The tequila diamonds could be used to “detect radiation, coat cutting tools or, above all, as a substitute for silicon in the computer chips of the future,” said Miguel Apatiga, one of three researchers from the National Autonomous University of Mexico who made the discovery.The scientists found that heated vapour from tequila blanco, when deposited on a stainless steel base, can form diamond films.
