Well, solid body armour isn't that great an idea because of the mobility
difficulties inherent in it.

I think a far better armour could be achieved by using a net of diamond
crystals ,connected in a manner that would let the material flex. Depending
on the shape of these crystals, they can be almost entirely diffuse, and
therefore not transperant. In addition, diamond is an incredibly strong
substance, and not very heavy.
