How Are Lab Grown Diamonds Created?
While natural certified Diamonds come from the earth, lab grown Diamonds come from — you guessed it — a laboratory. Lab grown Diamonds, much like natural Diamonds, only form under specific circumstances. In recent years, scientists have figured out how to mimic the earth’s natural “diamond making” conditions.
Interestingly, lab grown Diamonds are virtually identical to natural Diamonds! Attributes they share include:
Remember: A diamond, no matter its origin, is highly pressurized carbon that has experienced a chemical change. Lab grown Diamonds even have the same scintillation, fire and sparkle as natural grown Diamonds.
These Lab grown Diamonds are categorized on the basis of their creation methods. Namely, they’re defined as chemical vapor deposition Diamonds (CVD Diamonds) or high-pressure, high-temperature Diamonds (HPHT Diamonds).
CVD Diamonds are created by depositing oc chemical vapours. While HPHT Diamonds are made with classic pressure techniques, which causes the diamond-creating chemical reaction. Most of the lab-grown Diamonds offered by Sun Diamond are CVD Diamonds.
