Mexican scientists have discovered that their national drink is good for a lot more than margaritas, the Guardian reports. Tequila contains hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon in exactly the right proportion to form diamonds when it is heated to a vapor and left to crystallize. The extremely thin tequila diamonds are way too small for rings, researchers say, but have many industrial uses.
"The fact it's tequila has a certain charm," said a scientist. "It's a Mexican product and Mexican researchers developed the project."
