Dimonds and coal are both made out of carbon, completly.
so coal is flamable but are dimonds? or are they an isotope other than carbon 12?

Diamonds will burn quite easily actually. Not so easily that your diamond will ever burn accidentally in a fire.

In a pure oxygen environment the temperatures are fairly low (1320 degrees) in our "real world" atmospheres are but 20% oxygen, therefore the temperatures to burn them must be 1520 or so degrees.
Are diamonds flammable

Given enough heat and oxygen, almost anything can fuel a fire.
