New diamonds from the lab'

video
This is a 1 carat canary yellow real diamond made from 'Cremains - just 100 grams, however it took 10,000 tons per sq.inch and 1300c for a few weeks. Then from the 3 carat crystal it was cut in the ubiquitous 'brilliant' cut (which has 58 facets) - not too deep and not too shallow to allow the light to pass in and straight out but split into all the colours of the rainbow.
Sorry about the quality of the video - blame Blooger
