Infographic: How You Can Save Up to $14,790 While Buying Lab Grown Diamonds
Lab grown diamonds are made of carbon just like earth-mined diamonds. Both are exactly the same chemically, physically, and visually. However, they are created differently, which is why lab grown diamonds are dramatically (as much as 40 to 50 percent) less expensive per carat than a mined equivalent.
While the former is mined having been created about 100 miles below the surface in the earth’s upper mantle after millions of years under intense heat and pressure, the latter is grown in a lab from a single carbon seed that crystallizes fairly quickly. However, just like no two natural diamonds are the same, no two lab grown diamonds turn out exactly the same, which makes them even more attractive besides their lower price.
Out of 10 to 100 carats per hundred tons of ore from mines, only 20% of the overall output is of gem quality. Even top mines move 5 tons of ore, plus 25 tons of additional rock, to produce 1 carat of diamonds. The final yield is approximately 1/2 carat since about half that weight is lost in cutting. At least 1,200 pounds of ore and rock are excavated, about 250 tonnes of the earth is shifted, and more than 30 pounds of Sulphur oxide and 125 pounds of carbon are produced for every single carat of a traditionally mined diamond.
Contrastingly, lab grown diamonds emit just six pounds or less than 5 percent of carbon that natural diamonds produce. They also produce no Sulphur oxide. In total, air emissions on a single carat of lab grown diamond are 1.5 billion times lower than those of a natural one. Being dangerous, mined diamonds also result in 1 injury and 80 days of lost work time per 1,000 employees every year. Lab grown diamonds cause no injuries and no lost work time.
