Forget Coffins! This Company Will Turn You Into A Diamond When You Die
Diamonds are forever!
Instead of passing away the conventional way Algordanza is a Swiss startup company that is dedicated to creating memorial diamonds that can be worn conveniently wherever and whenever!
Human bodies are around 20% carbon which allows Rinaldo Willy, founder of Algordanza, to use this amazing process that grows synthetic diamonds.
“During cremation, the majority of carbon escapes as carbon dioxide. In the ashes remain 1-5% of carbon. In our laboratory we are able to isolate this carbon from all other substances. This isolated carbon is the foundation for the diamond growth following the example set by nature.
The carbon solely from the remains of your loved one converts under high pressure and high temperature to graphite. The purified graphite is the foundation for the subsequent diamond transformation inside our own HPHT (High Pressure – High Temperature) machines.
A diamond starter crystal within the growth cell triggers the growth of the Memorial Diamond. It is melted into a metal alloy and does not conjoin with the carbon isolated from the cremation ashes. More diamond crystals slowly crystalize on the surface of the starter crystal.
The growth process takes weeks – depending on the desired size of the Memorial Diamond. The starter crystal is then removed from the surface of the rough diamond.”
If you reckon you have lived a pretty fabulous life and want this legacy to continue then prices range from $3,000-$20,000
