Available Cremation Diamond Cuts
The memorial diamond is shining in white up to bluish coloring. The bluish tint is depending on the individual quality of the element Boron in the carbon. After the synthesis, the rough diamond is cut and polished according to the customers request. The diamond may also be inscribed by laser up to 50 characters.
The Cremation Diamond is presented in an elegant protective casing along with a certified signed by the founder of the diamond maker, Algordanza. This certifies and guarantees the authenticity, origin, color, size, and weight.
How the Cremation Diamond is Made
1. The human elements (cremated remains) go through analysis
2. All non-carbon elements are dissolved leaving only raw organic carbon with variable traces of boron. (Boron levels dictate the color of the diamond)
3. The organic carbon is then converted into graphite. The graphite is then placed into a Diamond Press with a started diamond crystal. The graphite and starter crystals are subjected to 2700 F and 1,000,000 psi. The graphite then crystallizes off of the diamond recreating the same molecular structure as the starter diamond.
4. Once crystallized to the desired carat weight the contents are then removed from the press and the natural diamond crystal is cut from the rough diamond. The rough diamond is then cut down to the desired shape and the polished.
5. If selected, the diamond is then sent for laser engraving. If not, the diamond will be delivered.
