Or did he not hear because he was so blocked everything out after what just happened and was focusing on Bella? Because I never had the impression that Bree was talking to Edward the whole time the Volturi were there.

Just because the outer shell of vampires is hard and has some diamond-like visual qualities does not mean that they share key chemical qualities, such as boiling point and general flammability nor even their tensile strength or toughness (which for diamonds, is only rated fair). The refractive argument was a huge stretch as well.

wait for it...
you are right.
I am afraid you are sorely mistaken. As I stated before, the toughness rating of diamonds is far from extraordinary. While a typical bullet won't shatter a diamond, bullets will chip pieces off; high velocity armor piercing ammunition will chip even larger pieces off. It's basic physics.Knives wrote:Try shooting diamond with any form of ammunition on earth sometime. The bullet will break first.

Each little cell in their skin has become a separate facet that reflects the light. These facets have a prism-like quality–they throw rainbows as they glitter.
