How the Ashes of your Departed Loved One Can Be Turned Into Cremation Diamonds
Cremation diamonds are synthetic diamonds created from the carbon content of the cremated ashes of a deceased.
Swiss cremation diamond specialist LONITÉ, with an existing branch office in Buffalo, New York State in the USA uses specialized HPHT technology in their state of the art laboratory to create the conditions necessary as in the growth of a natural diamond. About 200 g of ashes or 10 g of hair are required for the creation of a cremation diamond and the carbon content of ashes differs in each case. The ashes are placed in a specialized crucible which is heated to over 5000F so every element oxidizes, except carbon and then the temperature is raised further so that carbon becomes graphite. The graphite with a metal catalyst and a diamond seed crystal are placed into the core which goes into a specialized diamond press capable of creating extreme tension thus bringing the pressure to about 800,000 pounds/square inches. During the last stretch when the press is working, the temperature in the room stays about 2500F so that the diamonds from ashes become solid. Cremation diamond creation takes about 6 to 9 months depending on the characteristics selected.
Besides cremation diamonds, other ways to handle ashes in USA include;
Scattering a loved one’s ashes in a place that they loved to be: a forest, the ocean or at their home. Places such as national parks require a permit for scattering ashes.
For the bereaved that want to have a physical place to visit even after cremating their deceased, burying the ashes is a good option.
Some people prefer to keep the ashes of their deceased, at home in urns. These can even be personalized into sculptures that look like the deceased.

Launch the ashes in Fireworks: Fireworks shells can be modified to hold and scatter the ashes of the deceased in an amazing light show for the bereaved.
Some of the ash disposal methods like burying the ashes and scattering them in water are not environment-friendly as they pollute underground soils, water and the air we breathe with toxins. However, there are ecologically safer alternatives in the USA such as;
Ashes into a reef which involves putting the ashes of the deceased into cement mix before it is poured into the form which coral grows on.
Memorial tree: The cremated ashes are placed into a biodegradable urn which is then planted in the ground. In the long run, the roots expand through to give birth to a very beautiful tree.
