Natural Diamonds And Synthetic Diamonds Has A Kind Of Difference?

Natural diamonds are at a depth of 200 kilometers below the surface in the extreme conditions of high temperature (about 1500.C) and high pressure (about 50,000 atmospheres) of growth. But people have been able to create the same conditions in a laboratory environment to produce synthetic diamonds.

Natural diamonds are at a depth of 200 kilometers below the surface in the extreme conditions of high temperature (about 1500.C) and high pressure (about 50,000 atmospheres) of growth. But people have been able to create the same conditions in a laboratory environment to produce synthetic diamonds.

Over the years, synthetic diamonds are mainly used for industrial purposes, while the production of large-size gem grade diamonds are very complex. Gem-quality diamonds are very expensive so that the cost was bleak. But this decade with the Soviet Union, due to the development of low-cost compact Russia "BARS" technology, though small in number, the market has been repeatedly found in this type of equipment to produce synthetic diamonds.

Identification of natural diamonds and synthetic diamonds is imperative. But it is much more difficult than the difference between the fake diamonds. Natural diamond and synthetic diamond portion is composed of carbon atoms, and is arranged in the same crystal lattice, so that they have the same physical properties. The only feature that the crystal lattice and the atomic-scale microstructure of irregularities, that is, the crystal defects. In this regard, due to different growing environments, such as chemical environment, growth rate, natural diamonds and synthetic diamonds are inconsistent, today most of the synthetic diamonds on the market was very strong yellow, orange, or brown, it is easy to be distinguished .
