Innovative Materials: New Type of Diamonds

Well, I don't really believe in lame stereotypes but one that holds true for me since I LOVE Diamonds is ...that diamonds are truly are a girl's best friend.

A great site for fun reading RandomGoodStuff.com had an interesting article about an innovation in making your own diamonds.

"Perfect single-crystal diamonds of more than two carats (the average engagement ring is less than a carat) churned out in a day. Scientists create the gemstones using a process called chemical vapor deposition (CVD), which grows diamond crystals one carbon atom at a time."

The slideshow on how to grow diamonds is interesting so go check it out.

COOL, NOT CRUEL!!!!

I've heard that in the real diamond trade, innocent men, women, and children (including the very innocent infants) get their arms whacked off above the elbow and legs get chopped off wherever, just so the big creeps can get the valuable diamonds (which, of course, are later sold in the U.S. and elsewhere for huge profits). Apparently, most people are not aware of the plea for people to outright STOP buying diamonds.

Since this offers a SAFE alternative to the natural diamonds that have disastrous results, I think you have a gold mine. Oops, that would be dia-mine.

The Victims of Chopped Off Limbs

I'm going out on a limb here to report that the ones who were killed are now quite Ghana and the ones who had all four limbs chopped off are cubic tanzania's.

Who Wants to Buy This Diamond Ring?

I whacked it off her finger,
Now she's very mean to me

This diamond ring won't be mined for anymore
And this diamaond ring won't cause any more gore

This stone is genuine
Even though it isn't from a mine

So if you don't have a clue,
Let it shine for you.
