Scientists have used a new technique to synthesize diamonds at normal atmospheric pressure and without a starter gemstone, making the precious gemstones much easier to grow in the laboratory.

Natural diamonds form in the Earth’s mantle, buried the molten zone hundreds of kilometers beneath the planet’s surface. The process occurs under enormous pressure of several gigapascals and scorching temperatures of more than 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit (1,500 degrees Celsius).
