Diamonds from ashes, a way to embrace your loved one’s memory day by day.
Algordanza Memorial Diamond is a certified, high-quality diamond created from the carbon of a loved one as a memorial to their unique life. We provide families with a more individualized and personalized approach to memorializing their loved ones.No additives are used nor the colour manipulated during or after the growing phase of the diamond to keep ashes as unadulterated as possible.
To create the diamond carbon is taken from ashes or hair and placed in the crucible for a few weeks at over 5000 degrees until the carbon turns to graphite. The graphite is placed in a core with a metal catalyst and a diamond seed crystal. This is then placed in a diamond press at 2,500 degrees fahrenheit and the pressure to about 800,000 pounds per square inch. Around 2 months later the graphite transforms into a rough crystal that can be cut to your specifications.
We provide for families’ distinct and individual memorialization needs. More and more families believe that the deceased should be honoured and remembered but feel that the survivors’ experience is equally important. We are providing a positive solution to these family needs.
