What is the melting point and boiling point of a diamond?

ElementMelting PointBoiling Point
Carbon (graphite)3730 (sublimes)
Carbon (diamond)3550(4830)

Similarly, it is asked, what is the temperature to melt diamond?

Lava erupts at anything up to around 1200 degrees Celsius, while the melting point of diamond at surface pressure is around 3550 degrees Celsius.

Do diamonds melt or burn?

Is it possible to melt diamonds into a liquid? I mean if you heat diamond at open air it will start to burn around 700 degrees Celsius, reacting with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide gas. In the absence of oxygen it will transform into graphite, a more stable form of carbon, long before turning into graphite.
