Modern Marvels: Man Made Diamonds
15 January 2016 / Blog
Science has made incredible leaps and bounds over the course of the past century–and one amazing symbol of this has been the so-called artificial man made diamond. Using intricate chemical re-engineering and innovative technology that simulates the billion-year process of diamond creation that used to occur beneath the earths surface under intense heat and pressure, scientists can now create diamonds that stand up to all tests. In fact, even geologists are unable to distinguish artificial diamonds from earth-made diamonds without conducting special tests with sophisticated equipment. Some commemorative artificial diamond makers can even incorporate the carbon from the ashes of a loved one in order to make a special memorial diamond!
