The paper presents new data on the internal structure of super-deep diamonds originating from different levels of sublithospheric mantle. These diamonds typically have complicated growth histories displaying alternating episodes of growth, dissolution, and post-growth deformation and crushing. It is shown that most crystals have endured both plastic and brittle deformation during their growth history. Abundant deformation and resorption/growth features suggest a highly dynamic growth environment for super-deep diamonds. High temperatures expected in the transition zone and lower mantle could explain the plastic deformations of super-deep diamonds with low nitrogen content. View this paper
