How lab-grown diamonds are made?

  1. First, they take a piece of real diamond as raw material. It’s used as a seed.
  2. Then they replicate the piece under lab conditions.
  3. They put that seed under a reactor that has a 2300-degree Fahrenheit temperature.
  4. To maintain the pressure, they put carbon and methane gas.
  5. Gradually the stone is formed.
  6. It takes 21 ~ 24 days to make 1 carat.

How to differentiate diamonds

There’s a thing called Diamond pen tester. It checks the thermal conductivity of a stone.

When it’s placed on a diamond it will show a temperature reading of that stone. If the pen tester doesn’t give any result, then it’s Cubic Zirconia.

In both lab-grown diamonds and natural diamonds, the pen tester will show the same result.
