Is an advanced nurse with training in Anesthesiology. They are qualified to put patients to sleep in surgery and other settings requiring anesthesia.
An anesthesiologists arch enemy and replacement. More and more hospitals are hiring them because they are just as efficient, effective, safe, and cost only half of what the doctor version makes. A position that annoys doctors, because they make as much as a family practice physician, without going to med school and sacrificing 12 years of their life.
Crystalized carbon. Diamond is a cubic mineral, like gold, spinel, fluorite, etc. Its ideal crystal shape is eight-sided -- two pyramids attached to each other. Its refractive index is 2.42, as opposed to cubic zirconia which is 2.15; sapphire and ruby which are 1.77; emerald, aquamarine, heliodore and morganite which are 1.57, and so on.
Diamond is rated as a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, but only because it is the only natural gem harder than corundum (sapphire and ruby) which are a 9 on the scale. In reality, diamond is more like a 41 -- its not just a little harder than corundum, but mucher harder.
Diamonds are mined in South Africa, Australia, Siberia, Canada, Brazil and a few other lesser places. Most gem-quality diamonds mined are a light yellow or light brown color, but the stones occur naturally in every color of the rainbow, including colorless (which is the most popular for jewelry), milky translucent white and opaque black.
