What is a Lab Grown Diamond?
The name says it all, lab grown diamond, a diamond that’s been grown in a lab. Even though lab-grown diamonds have been around since the 1950’s it’s only in the last decade that scientists have been able to grow the gem quality of a natural diamond.
With the advancement in technology over the past year’s, scientists have been able to imitate the conditions under which mined diamonds are formed in the earth’s mantle. The result from this is a lab-grown diamond that exhibits the same physical, chemical and optical properties as a natural mined diamond, since they are composed of the same element, under essentially the same conditions.
