Crystal structure of Diamond

Diamond structure is like a face-centered cubic(FCC) lattice. Each carbon atom joins four other carbon atoms in regular tetrahedrons. A tetrahedron has four faces and six edges. It is like an Egyptian pyramid in which the base is a triangle instead of a square.

Imagine a face-centered cubic lattice!

Diamond is composed of pure carbon.

This structure shows one unit cell of the diamond structure.

The diamond structure can be viewed as a face-centered cubic array with half of the tetrahedral holes filled.
