The development and the use of the diamond anvil cell for Mössbauer Spectroscopy (MS) to pressures nearing 100 GPa are discussed. Three types of cells and their typical performance are given. Pressure calibration, hydrostatic media, gasketing, collimation, γ-ray absorption, and sample size for MS are reviewed. New MS results showing hysteresis in the room temperature high pressure transition in iron and showing the rapid rise of TN in NiI2 with pressure are presented.
