What is a lab grown diamond?
A lab grown diamond is a diamond that is grown in a laboratory, as opposed to being mined from the earth. They are physically and chemically identical to mined diamonds, but they come with a much smaller environmental footprint. It is possible to replicate the conditions that are required to make a diamond by applying intense heat and pressure to a piece of carbon. Since the process happens in a lab, it is far easier to control the outcome.
