Random question for you...
Can diamonds be made into little spheres?

Euphro says:

That's an interesting question. There are round Brazilian diamonds:

and almost spherical diamond abrasives:

but I don't know of gem-quality finished diamond spheres. It strikes me that it would be quite difficult, although probably possible with laser cutting or even chemical vapor deposition :)
