So, here is a memento of my late grandfather that I have on my desk at work. I think it's from the 1970s, possibly the 1980s. "Shock synthesized polycrystalline diamond" embedded in some basically indestructible plastic from the same company, DuPont. What I've been told is that the silvery lumps in the copper section are diamonds, but I have no way of verifying that.

What can you tell us about that process? Is that what you use? If not, how is yours different?

Have you played "Here I Stand," designed by Ed Beach? I scored a copy a little while back and have been itching to try it out, but it turns out that "having toddlers" and "playing advanced strategic board games" do not mix.
