Short summary
The paper presents experimental results on the growth of diamonds in Fe–Ni melt together with silicate minerals at high PT. The morphology of the grown diamonds was studied, as well as the chemical composition of the synthetic silicates. This work builds on our preliminary experimental work presented in Zhimulev et al. (2012), which was an experimental evidence to confirm the hypothesis of crystallization of diamonds from metallic liquids explained in a pioneer paper by Smith et al. (2016).
