the nanodiamond cluster. These are larger colored versions of Fig. 1
from the talk manuscript.

damaged diamond - Saada/Kalish/Adler, visualization by Eduardo W.
Here a different color code is used:
blue for an atom with 4 nearest neighbours,
green for an atom with 3 nearest neighbours -
green bonds are drawn between two sp2 atoms thus highlighting
and brown atoms are atoms with less neighbours - although
the sample has periodic bundary conditions, only one replica is drawn
and so these appear on the sample outside, even though they are not physical.
