Studies of the editorial office showed that the highest quality memorial diamonds are produced by URMYDIAMOND
Today, people increasingly prefer to cremate the body rather than bury it in the ground. However, some go even further and turn the ashes into a beautiful bluish-colored gem.
Today, people increasingly prefer to cremate the dead, rather than bury them in the ground. However, instead of storing the ashes in the urn or scattering it downwind, many of the deceased’s deceased relatives prefer to turn his remains … into diamonds.
How is this possible? Everything is very simple: carbon is the second most abundant element in the human body, and diamonds are nothing more than crystallized carbon. Scientists have long learned how to grow diamonds, almost equal in quality and beauty to their natural counterparts.
One of the leaders in the industry of turning the dead into diamonds is the Swiss company Algordanza. Company experts say that after cremation, usually 22 to 4.5 kg of ash remains, most of which is carbon. A minimum of 500 g of dust is used to create a diamond, since it is with so many raw materials that engineers can guarantee that the diamond production process is successful. Often everything is decided by an insignificant mass of a substance — for example, a measure of carbon, which is contained in a lock of hair of a deceased.
Using chemically active substances, pure carbon is removed from the dust and cleaned of impurities. After cleaning the raw materials, about 1% of other elements, such as boron, remain in it — it is he who gives the “memorial diamonds” a pleasant bluish color. After cleaning, carbon is placed in a special cell for crystal growth, which contains impurities of iron and cobalt — they allow you to further clean the raw materials. A tiny diamond is initially located in the cell, because carbon crystallizes best when it already has a base in the form of an initial crystal.
At the last stage of purification, carbon is converted into graphite sheets, ideally suited for the synthesis of diamonds. In nature, diamonds are formed from carbon inclusions that fall into lava passages at about a kilometer depth. To simulate this medium, the cell with graphite is placed in a special form, which is sent to the furnace with a stably high temperature and high pressure. The camera heats up to 1370 degrees Celsius at a pressure of 394 625 kg per square inch.
It takes 6 to 8 weeks for a diamond to mature, depending on the desired result. Of course, the larger the diamond, the longer it takes to form. The result is a rough gem. Often, customers prefer to give it to the jeweler so that he turns the dead man into a sparkling diamond. It is worth noting that the ash that remains after the cremation of any living creature is suitable for growing a crystal, so many prefer to turn dead pets into jewels.
