| Required Minimum Amount of Hair
If you wish to keep some hair with you, we only require a minimum of 5g of ashes for the Algordanza cremation diamond.
A very small amount of hair is needed in comparison to ashes to diamonds. This is because hair naturally contains more carbon. The overall chemical composition of hair is 45% carbon.

| Diamond Size From Hair
More than one cremation diamond can be synthesized from the hair. We can accurately estimate the number of diamonds only after a detailed analysis performed in our laboratory, however, normally from 5g of hair we can produce up to at least one 1.5ct diamond, or 4 smaller diamonds up to a size of 0.4ct.
| When There is Not Enough Hair
When there is not enough hair for a diamond it is possible to mix it with anothers hair to create an eternal bond within a forever lasting diamond. Many customers choose this option for their wedding rings, engagement rings or anniversary rings.
You can also use ashes or any personal objects containing carbon, e.g. letters, pictures, and toys etc. Please see Algordanza Origin and Algordanza Pure for more details.
