Depending upon the Amount of Boron in the ashes; The diamond is Bluer
Algordanza is making the use of a number of machines along with some really wonderful scientific processes to make the ashes of your loved ones undergo a transformation resulting in the creation of a peculiar memorial diamond. The company separates the carbon from the dead person’s ashes and then converts it into graphite followed by subjecting it to high temperatures and pressure, thus creating the diamond ‘seed’.
The diamond’s color is dependent upon the amount of boron that is present in the ashes with more boron resulting in a diamond with more blue shade. Although these do look pretty, the cost of one such diamond is around $4,500 apart from the cost of cremation. So would you get your loved one converted into a diamond?
