Gemesis diamonds

See also

Lab created real diamonds, not mined, yet real.

Compare this video (Gemesis diamonds) to (Apollo diamonds, 2 parts). Different techniques, different results. Gemesis diamonds are mostly yellow due to the Nitrogen in the atmosphere getting inside the crystal during the growing process. Apollo diamonds can be created in all colors including colorless depending on how much impurity is introduced in the growing chamber. e.g. add boron to make blue diamonds.

Note that synthetic diamonds are real diamonds made in lab. They possess identical physical and chemical properties of diamonds. They are real though not natural (read ) Imitation or simulated diamonds are fakes using different materials to mimic the looks of diamonds. (read )
