I think this paragraph answers your questions.  If you use a gold 
standard then the value of gold would be inflated.  As you pointed out 
early in your post we could break it down to an atom and have each atom 
be worth a lot of other goods.  Now the problem is we have inflated the 
value of gold.  Thus making it too expensive to use for industrial 
uses.  Eliminating an entire class of goods. Now if you wanted to use 
man made diamonds instead, that would be fine.  After all we have plenty 
of carbon.
