In 2004, astronomers discovered a star composed entirely of diamond, measuring 4,000 km across and 10 billion trillion trillion carats. 50 light years from Earth, the diamond star is classified as a crystallized white dwarf, the hot core that remains after a star burns out. Scientists confirmed that the crystallized carbon interior of the star is, in fact, the galaxy’s largest diamond. Technically named BPM 37093, called "Lucy" after the Beatles song, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
