However, Myth Busters did confirm that explosives can compress graphite into diamonds.

The Build Team was invited to New Mexico Tech to see the demonstration, which used 5,000 pounds (2,300 kg) of explosives. This was the largest explosion ever recorded on MythBusters, producing over twelve times the energy of any previous explosion on the show. After a chemical bath and examination of the results, they did discover diamonds. However, the process only produced low-quality industrial diamonds. While still chemically diamonds, the Build Team agreed that this process was too impractical to attempt at home and that any homemade diamond scheme was implausible.

@scttydsntknw - Myth Busters did the peanut butter test by putting their ingredients in a pressure cooker for three days. That doesn't seem to be the way scientist in other articals intend for it to be done. Though I admit the whole thing seems far fetched, stranger things have happened.
