Summary

Theoretical phase diagram of carbon, which shows the state of matter for varying temperatures and pressures. The hatched regions indicate conditions under which one phase is metastable, so that two phases can coexist.

Accurate illustration but not a pixel-exact plot. Also note that a considerable disagreement exists between theory and experiment, e.g., for the triple point doi:10.1016/0008-6223(76)90010-5
