Diamonds grown in lab: How diamonds grow
Posted by CNN Money on Monday, January 23, 2019 03:22:20Diamonds grown at a lab in the U.S. can be as small as one millimeter and as large as a football field.
They are grown from a single piece of quartz, called a gemstone, and can last for generations.
The process is a key to making a diamond that is highly sought after by collectors and jewelers.
But the process is not entirely simple.
Some scientists and engineers say it is the most labor-intensive and dangerous in the world.
Diamonds must first be chemically separated from the quartz in a lab.
It takes about a day for the quartz to break down into the mineral needed for the process.
The next step is to separate the gemstone from the sand, which takes two days.
Once the sand has been separated, the gem is separated by a chemical process called diamond washing, where a special solvent is used to break the gemstones down.
Finally, the diamond is washed with a chemical that removes the toxic chemicals and minerals.
Scientists say this process can take between three to five days to complete.
This is a process that requires the diamond to be treated with chemicals that can harm human health, such as hydrogen cyanide and formaldehyde.
In some cases, the chemicals may be used in the production of the diamond, while others could be used as a part of the production process.
The process takes weeks to months to complete, and is the biggest source of greenhouse gases in the environment.
