Nice pictures, is this an actual diamond or another trigonal crystal?

My previous post with the crystal with striations on it.  The same one,  still unidentified. In the first pic the truncated trigons or round triangles indicates diamond or quartz?
Just uploaded the pic that's the one I'm talking about.ignore the blue stains as there was a blue stand stood next to it when taking a pic.

To me, it looks like diamond, all the other pictures of trigons i've seen would similar enough. Also, it would not imply a conchoidal fracture considering how lined up they are. In my opinion, diamond.
