Micro-impurities in natural diamond may give it colour. Do they also
impart quantum properties?
Boron in micro-quantities is thought to cause diamond to grow
parallelogram shapes not found in pure diamond. The title of a recent
article in “Science” reads “Diamond Feats Give Quantum Computing A
Solid Boost”. (August 6/10). How would we know if natural diamond has
been shaped in part by quantum control?
The researchers of course are seeking a new chip for the quantum
computers as Dwave in BC now has on the market. They may have found
it in “quantum diamonds”. For that matter, why not other gems and
