Body centered tetragonal carbon, 108 atoms, 164 bonds
The body centered tetragonal structure shown in the image is the newest lattice form of carbon to be described. This model measure 160mm square by 45mm thick. This material may even occur naturally on a planet, Cancri e, some 40 light years from Earth.
