What is a synthesized diamond?

The synthesized diamond, a true diamond in every sense, has the same chemical, physical, atomic, optical and other characters as the natural diamond.
The synthesized diamond is produced artificially by simulating the crystallizing character of natural diamonds.

History of synthesized diamonds

In 1953, the first synthesized industrial diamond was produced by a Swedish company.
In 1955, GE from the USA also successfully synthesized industrial diamonds.
In 1970, GE synthesized the first precious diamond.
In 1988, De Beers from the UK successfully synthesized colored synthesized diamonds.

Characters of the synthesized diamonds

1.Crystal habit:Synthesized diamonds are always cubes, octahedrons or the combined form of both.
2.Crystal face texture:Synthesized diamonds may have branch-like, sand-like or intersecting textures with coarse surfaces.
3.Seed crystal:Seed crystal and seed crystal phantom zone.
4.Types of synthesized diamonds:Synthesized diamonds are divided into Ib type and II type. The Ib type can be made into Ib-and-Ia mixed type after high-temperature processing.
5.Inclusion:Needle-like, flake-like and needle-point-like metal inclusions, which in quantity magnetize the synthesized diamonds obviously or endow them with electrical conductivity.
6.Absorption spectrum:synthesized diamonds have no characteristic 415.5-nm absorption lines.

Application of synthesized diamonds

Experts predicted that the most significant invention this century would be diamonds that could grow up. Cost-effective diamonds will supersede the silicon in semiconductors and lead the humankind science to another world.
Synthesized diamond accessories, however, will gradually supersede the place of their natural counterparts in the heart of consumers. Furthermore, synthesized diamonds are more diversified in their future development.

Advantages of synthesized diamonds

1.Types of synthesized diamonds are increasing and their quality is being perfected.
2.Synthesized diamonds possess not only the perfect diamond 4C standard, but also plentiful, changeable colors and diamond fire colors
3.Synthesized diamonds possess both the decorative practicability of jewelry accessories and the physical properties of the natural diamonds.
4.Synthesized diamonds far excel the natural diamonds as to the technological hurdles and scientific cost.
But their retail prices are lower than those of their natural counterparts.

1.Concept of the synthesized diamonds
Lab-synthesized diamonds create the history of human synthesizing technology. “Synthesized diamonds” is the most widely accepted term, but we prefer to call them “lab-growing diamonds” or “lab-creating diamonds”.
2.Differences between the synthesized diamonds and other diamonds
Common imitations such as cubic zirconia, moissanite, white sapphire and leaded crystal have the appearance of the natural diamonds, but they don’t possess all the characters of the diamonds. Synthesized diamonds are not imitations or products that simulate the diamonds, or any products resembling diamonds. Imitations can usually be made in quite a simple way but synthesized diamonds border on true diamonds in every sense: they have the same chemical, physical, atomic, optical and other characters as the natural diamonds!
3.Characters of the synthesized diamonds
Lab-synthesized diamonds is made in high-tech equipment by simulating the natural environment for the natural diamonds to form. With all the characters the same as the natural diamonds, lab-synthesized diamonds are usually octahedral or hexahedral cubes, which depends on the parameters in the growth process. Just like lab-synthesized diamonds, all the exploited diamonds are affected by the external environments. And their clarity, namely inclusion, will also be affected. The exploited diamonds grow in the deep lava and their inclusions are the most common feather-like or crystal-like ones, while the most common foreign substances of lab-growing diamonds are metal-like inclusions.
4.Concepts of of the synthesized diamonds
Produced by the most brilliant scientists, special engineers and skilled technicians, the synthesized diamonds only consume an appropriate amount of electric power and raw materials without any destructive exploitation with large-scale machines. The harsh realities caused by the exploitation of natural diamonds such as blood diamonds, child laborers, human right violation, depletion of natural resources, havoc of the ecological environment on the earth gave rise to peaceful thinking and green environmental protection ideas of lab-synthesized diamonds. Synthesized diamonds, promoting the world peace while protecting our planet, will certainly exude gorgeous shines.
