Diamonds (Not) From Sierra Leone

Filed under: science — ted @ 4:52 pm

This CNET photo article highlights the impressive leaps made by the synthetic diamond industry. Technology has advanced to the point where diamond makers can create perfect “cultured” diamonds in a factory — much like pearls that are grown on a pearl farm.

Hopefully the stigma associated with “fake” diamonds will disappear with enough time, and buying diamonds will no longer be quite so stupid.

(Thanks, Sarah!)

(You too, Kanye. Awesome song!)
