The "chirping" noise sound effect that represents the speech of the slow moving people at the diamond exhibition is the same effect used for the communicators on Star Trek

A diamond does not burn as such; if one is exposed to a temperature of approximately 1300 °F in air, (3,600 °F in vacuum or oxygen-free atmosphere), it turns to graphite, a form of carbon that is one of the softest minerals known. At a temperature of 6600 °F, it goes directly from a solid to a gaseous state.
There is nothing special about the physical properties of a diamond that would make it impossible to use another form of carbon for a chemical reaction. Hence, Morgan Midas could have as easily obtained the carbon he needed for his elixir from pencil lead, since the temperatures he uses (4000 °F) would change the diamonds to graphite anyway as a byproduct of his process.

Oh by the way, where is West today? I was told you two always work together.
Well, we always do work together. Separately.
