The state-run university’s Geodynamics Research Center said it has processed an artificially produced diamond, named Hime, into a perfect four-carat sphere with a diameter of 7.5 millimeters.
In 2003, the research center synthesized a tiny grain of Hime diamond measuring less than 1 millimeter wide. The centre combined carbon atoms by subjecting them to 150,000 times the standard atmospheric pressure and temperatures of 2,300 C.

By last year, the research team had become able to create Hime diamonds up to 1 centimeter wide, they said.
Hime diamonds are far harder than naturally formed diamonds. They have a uniform degree of hardness throughout their structure, whereas this changes in different parts of a natural diamond, according to the centre.

Yes you read it right, now your eye can have glitter of gold and twinkle of diamonds. The idea to bring the jewelry industry to the eyes of the contact lenses business is that of Chandrashekhar Chawan, optometrist and creator of La Ser eye jewelry line. As if having the ability to go from brown eyes to blue, now anyone can see the world through gold and diamonds – contacts, that is – for a whopping $15K a pair.

Well for eyes not to worry! Although not FDA approved, Chawan says the lenses are safe and comfortable, sitting 6 to 9mm away from the eye. You’ll also get your choice of diamonds set in yellow or white gold. So the next time you see someone with an extra twinkle in their eye, do a double take because their eyes just might be sparkling with diamonds.
