Lab-grown diamonds, also referred to as lab-created diamonds, man-made diamonds, engineered diamonds, and cultured diamonds, are grown in tightly controlled lab environments using cutting-edge technological procedures that mimic the conditions under which diamonds develop when they form in the mantle, beneath the crust. These diamonds consist of genuine carbon atoms organized in the distinctive diamond crystal structure. Since they are composed of the substance as real diamonds, they have similar chemical characteristics.
There are several different colorless ranges of our lab grown diamonds Australia readily available. Fancy colors that are regarded as being extremely rare in nature, such as popular shades of brilliant yellow, are also offered in our lab-created diamonds. Comparatively inexpensive compared to their counterparts in the natural coloured diamond market are fancy colored lab-created diamonds.
How Are Diamonds Grown in a Lab Made?
From the minute carbon seeds of pre-existing diamonds, our lab-grown diamonds Australia are produced. Modern technology imitates the process by which natural diamonds are formed, an innovative deposition process, or extremely high pressure and heat. After they are developed, some man-made diamonds formed through deposition may also be subjected to pressure and heat treatment. Like in nature, minute amounts of particular trace elements must be present throughout the growth phase of a generated diamond in order for fancy-coloured diamonds to occur. The precise composition of trace elements can vary between white man-made diamonds and fancy-coloured ones from natural diamond equivalents. Specialized tools that can identify minute variations in trace components and crystal development are the only way to tell a man-made diamond from a natural diamond.
Simulants of diamonds
It’s critical to understand the key distinction between lab-grown diamonds and diamond substitutes. Although moissanite and cubic zirconia seem to like diamonds, they are not real carbon crystals. Simulants sell for a lot less than lab-created diamonds because they lack the chemical and physical characteristics of real diamonds.
