Whilst playing the demo, I found this using the sonar at the indicated place.

A close up indicates some sort of action is available, but they just disappear when I do so:

Could someone explain to me what these are? Did I find something cool?

Isn't that on the lower level - just where the tigers arrive - near the wall - the Jar is containing the "secret" it's that shape - looks like a jewel.

No. It's hard to see in the little pics, but the link shows them better.

They are in the air, about 3 times Lara's height above her, and in between the level she is standing and the monument on the other side of the large gap.

This youtube video might help to explain it.

I apologise for the quality - controller in one hand and camera in the other...

I hit A button but then the diamonds go away. but then if I look again the diamonds are still there, how do I get the diamonds. I pushed the A button and nothing happens.

I get the same behaviour.

Yep. It's a good name :)
Despite having a fast internet, it still always depends on the speed of the remote party. If they are being hammered/throttled - you will see the result.

Interesting - perhaps it's a debug item accidentally left in the game? If it were a secret, a special one that gave you the whole sonar map - this would be a crap implementation. :scratch:

Not likely, checkpoints are signified by the 'ding' sound, and there aren't any diamonds at the other checkpoints.
