A 2500-milewide Diamond in Space?

Astronomers are checking a White Dwarf, 300 trillion
miles away in the constellation Centaurus.
It just might be a crystallising carbon monster,
thats turning itself into a 2500 mile diameter Diamond. Astronomers have named it BPM 37093.
Travis Metcalfe head of USA Astrophysics team who discovered it said "it could weigh 10 billion trillion trillion carats"
more under 'BPM 37903'

**I wonder how they would detect summat like this?
