They could be some distant alien planets made of diamonds, scientists say.

Scientists found in a new study with the right conditions such as the presence of heat and water pressure, exoplanets with high carbon concentrations could become diamonds. The researchers added that these exoplanets could also form silica, a silicon oxide found in quartz in nature.
