Periodic Videos featured The Professor on a visit to an Alrosa diamond sorting facility. He shows us some amazing diamonds, including some coloured ones. Purple, pink, yellow, octahedrons, cubes, twins. Fluorescent colours. We also see a few unique shapes such as one that looks like a hollowed-out skull and another rounded crystal with soccer-ball markings.
Towards the end, he gets to play with a huge basin filled with diamonds. It’s an experience few people get the opportunity to do.
Some of his quotes: “I just can’t believe that nature can make anything quite so beautiful.”
“This is the most extraordinary thing I’ve done on Periodic Videos… and certainly the most fun!”
Considering the amazing things that Periodic Videos have shown in the past, that last comment is a huge statement.
