Cubic diamond was synthesized with two systems, (1) graphite with pure magnesium carbonate (magnesite) and (2) graphite with mixed potassium and magnesium carbonate at pressures and temperatures above 9.5 GPa, 1600°C and 9 GPa, 1650°C, respectively. At these conditions (1) the pure magnesite is solid, whereas (2) the mixed carbonate exists as a melt. In this pressure range, graphite seems to be partially transformed into hexagonal diamond. Measured carbon isotope δ13C values for all the materials suggest that the origin of the carbon source to form cubic diamond was the initial graphite powder, and not the carbonates.
