A few bead models of diamondoid molecules

Mathematical beading can be used to construct any diamondoid molecule, also known as nanodiamonds or condensed adamantanes. Here, I show three such molecular systems:

Adamantane (C10H16);
Diamantane (C14H20) also diadamantane, two face-fused cages;
One of 9 isomers of Pentamantane with chemical formula C26H32.
