A company called New Age Diamonds is offering to make diamonds out of 1 to 2 grams of your hair or your pet's hair!
Your Personal Diamond is a real diamond grown in the laboratory. YPD is made personal by adding an extract of human hair (1-2 grams, click here for sample photo) into the carbon, base material for the diamond-growing process. YPD is grown from the seed under high pressure and at high temperature into a rough diamond (the process is often abbreviated as HPHT). It is then cut into a loose stone. Lab-created diamonds share identical optical, chemical, and physical properties of natural diamonds. They are real diamonds, and the only difference between the cultured diamonds and the diamonds commonly known as natural, is that they are made in a machine and not inside the Earth.
