Diamonds Made from Human Hair

A company in Russia called “New Age Diamonds” is offering to make a cultured diamond using human hair form your very own head. With a handful of your hair (approximately one gram’s worth) they combine it with carbon and run it through their HPHT (high pressure, high temperature) machine. The result is real, actual, diamond, and made from your DNA. The only fallback is that they don’t offer clear diamonds; only yellow, green, and red ones. This company does also offer diamonds made from dog hair and cremated ashes.


The band formerly known as Bean has finally gotten their stuff together and is releasing an album of their own songs. Check out the local band of UM students at www.theskinnyrocks.com.
