About the Diamonds

We’re not transferring any non-Earth technology here. Humans already know about making very data dense records in glass substrates.  Diamonds are better.  If the dinosaurs took notes that way we’d still have their literature.  A pure silica glass is an inexpensive substitute for carbon crystal, but if glass is buried for too many millennia the outer layers take up water and opalize.  As witness, the rainbow sheen that appears on pieces of ancient Roman glass.
