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.
