How They Grow


1

Inspect diamond seeds carefully to ensure they are free of inclusions.

2


Diamond Seeds

Prepare the surface for growth and place diamond seeds on growth platform.

3

Control chamber pressure and temperature.

4

Inject Hydrogen

Inject ultra-pure carbon-rich gases and other gases into the chamber.

5

Excite the gases to an energy level where they form a plasma.

6

Let it rain. High-energy carbon precipitates out of a plasma cloud and is deposited on the seeds. The atoms are of sufficient energy that they form the diamond allotrope, rather than the lower energy graphite allotrope.

7

Let it Grow

Let it grow. Wafer seeds gradually become diamond crystals, building up at a consistent rate until they reach the desired thickness.

8

Open chamber and remove diamond crystals.

9

Slice and shape, using high-energy lasers, for industrial applications.

9

Cut and polish into gems for jewelry.
