>and if it seems odd, recall the best known example of polymorphism: graphite and diamond are two forms of carbon, with different arrangements of the atoms.

Cristane (tricyclo[5.3.0.0]decane) was first discovered at Brown University. It seems that that evening, someone left the window to the lab open, and the next morning it was discovered that a

had flown in and left deposits throughout.

Does it contain magnesium magnesium?

Tsk, tsk. And twice in the same post! so Tsk, tsk again.
