ASHES TO DIAMONDS

A company in Switzerland transforms the ashes of the dearly departed into a diamond of up to 1 carat in 6-8 weeks. A pound of ashes is enough to make a diamond; a human body leaves behind an average 5.5 to 6.6 pounds of ashes. The carbon, which makes up about 15% of the ashes, is subjected to extremely high pressure and heat which transforms it into graphite and then, after more pressure and heat, into a diamond. The cost ranges from $4,400 to $16,700, depending on the size of the diamond.
