The Swiss company Algordanza has come up with a unique way for you to memorialize your loved one - turn their cremated remains into a diamond.
In order to create the diamond, carbon is extracted from the deceased's ashes.
The carbon is converted into graphite, which is then heated to 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit and put under 870,000 pounds of pressure per square inch.
The finished product looks something like this:
The color can range from white to dark blue, depending on the boron levels of the ashes.
As you can imagine, the process is expensive. It starts at about $4,500 USD.
But it might be worth it. You can wear the diamond and have your loved one with you wherever you go.
Or you can cherish the diamond, and have a beautiful reminder of your loved one.
One man turned his grandmother's remains into a diamond, and took her on a trip across the United States.
