TECHNOLOGY: THE SCIENCE BEHIND PERFECT REPLICATION OF MINED DIAMONDS
Synthetic Polished Diamonds vs Natural Diamonds
you happen to be among people who confuse synthetic diamonds, then its
time to clear the misconception first, as synthetic or laboratory grown
diamonds are in no way different than their naturally mined counterparts
in terms of their chemistry, molecular structure, and to an extent,
their physical properties. The only difference between the two is that
natural diamonds are produced over millions of years by slow carbon
transformation under tremendous heat and pressure, while synthetic
diamonds are created in laboratory by using carbon sources like methane
and creating the same conditions, albeit to a higher magnitude, to
hasten the process of pure carbon formation and its eventual conversion.
Moreover, in terms of aesthetic and superficial attributes, they
exhibit nearly the same levels of brilliance, luster and crystal
clarity, all that in a form that can also be customized and cut as per
your specification, which is something that real diamonds can not
provide, that too, at prices that are mere fractions of the hefty
premium that real diamonds command.The synthetic diamonds have similar properties as of mined diamonds, like:
One can not find the difference between the two with the use of a loupe, gem microscope, thermal diamond tester, refractometer, or polariscope.
