In order to turn human ashes into diamonds the carbon is first extracted, purified and then placed inside a High Pressure, High Temperature (HPHT) press. After being heated to over 2000 °C and applied with immense pressure, a diamond made from human ashes emerges from the purified carbon, serving as a perfect homage to your loved one.
How are cremation diamonds made?
To turn human ashes into diamonds requires three stages: carbon separation, carbon refinement, and HPHT diamond crystallization. Each step is meticulously performed to ensure the utmost quality. During the first stage, a carbon sample is extracted from cremation ashes or a lock of hair.
The carbon is then purified and graphitized. From here, it is placed in a HPHT press to form what is known as a diamond seed. From this seed, a new diamond will sprout.
The diamond seed is inserted into a HPHT press, where the final metamorphosis takes place. The seed-> carbon begins to crystallize around the seed, reshaping atom by atom into a beautiful diamond. Once the transformation is complete, it is cut and polished, ready to be worn and cherished for years to come.
