Turn Two Grams of Cat Fur into a Shinning Diamond

Updated: Jun 1, 2023


A beautiful memory is like a diamond. It sparkles, is forever, and is unique. Your friends and visitors must often tell you how much cat hair you have on you, and cats can shed a lot of hair daily and have up to two shedding and fur growth cycles in a year. The perfect way to honor a beloved pet that has passed away is to commemorate their memory by turning their ashes or fur into a diamond. You can wear it around your neck, as a ring or earring. That is the simplest and most endearing way to keep your loved ones close.

The Science: How to Turn Cat Fur into Diamonds


Carbon and Lab-Grown Diamonds


Diamonds are all carbon. Something unique happens when carbon is put under the right temperature and pressure. The atoms bind together in a crystalline form and make a diamond. So, it is possible to replicate these conditions and make a lab-grown diamond just as shiny and gorgeous as a natural diamond.


The Process


The process is tricky, but it can create a magnificent lab-grown diamond with enough patience. We must replicate natural conditions with extremely high temperatures (3000K) and pressure (60000Bar), so the carbon atoms can be bound together in crystalline form. The process has the following five steps:


  • Material Examination

First up, the carbon specimen like cat fur or ashes would be examined by the lab. Over three days, for 5000 minutes, 99.9% of the carbon is purified for the perfect, most stunning diamond. It is because the impurities reduced up to 1/500 of the original contaminants.

  • Planetary Nano-crystallization

It is now possible to create ultra-uniform nanodiamonds that are so symmetrical and eye-catching you would be stunned. It can be done with planetary nano-crystallization, the newest diamond formation method. The cat fur is milled into a fine nanopowder, and impurities are removed with a high-speed centrifuge.

  • Heated Vacuum Purification

For further purification, oxygen is removed, and inert gases are introduced. The carbon specimen of cat hair is further clarified by applying high voltage in an air-tight container to purify solid carbon even more.


  • Wet Chemical Carbon Purification

The pure carbon is then placed in a wet chemical environment to reach 99.99% purity.


  • HPHT Crystallization

Before being placed into the diamond synthesis machine, the pure carbon is converted to flake graphite as a cylinder.

As Real as a Diamond Can Get

It has the same physical, chemical, and optical properties as a natural diamond and can even be certified by GIA and IGI.


Size


You can determine the size of the diamond depending on your preferences. If you want stunning show-stopping diamonds, go for our 3-carat version. If you are looking for a soft, shining beauty diamond around your neck or on your finger, our 1-carat diamond is the way to go.


Color


Due to Nitrogen in the cat hair, diamonds made from cat fur are naturally amber in color. They range from light yellow to deep orange. But if you gravitate towards a clear, gorgeous diamond, we can permanently remove the Nitrogen. In short, the color of your cat’s fur will not affect the color of the diamond. It can be as gorgeous and unique as any other crystal-clear diamond.
