It is estimated that by 2020, half of Americans will opt for new cremation methods instead of the traditional burial process. The most appealing cremation method of all seems to be the one which converts ashes into a Diamond.
Yeah, you read it right. Ashes will be converted to Diamond with this amazing technique. Many Americans are investing in this new cremation method which promises to convert the ashes of their loved ones not only into Diamond but various other interesting stuff.
Read on to know the details of this cremation process.
Algordanza is a Swiss company with global presence in 33 countries. This company turns people's cremains into Diamonds.
Ashes are compressed and superheated to convert into a man-made diamond. The whole process is accomplished within a few weeks.
You can either decorate the diamond or even don it.
They want their cremains to convert into teddy bears, explode in fireworks or launch in space.
The human body consists of 18% carbon out of which only 2% remains after cremation. This carbon is used for making Diamond. The best thing is that you can get your finished product without any need of additional service within few weeks only.
Then carbon is heated until it turns into graphite.
Then, it is superheated to 2700 F and subjected to forces as high as 870,000 pounds per square inch. The color of the finished diamond can be either white or dark blue depending on the boron content of ashes.
