The ALGORDANZA Hair Diamond
In 2018, the ALGORDANZA Hair Diamond was introduced, it is made from carbon extracted exclusively from human hair or a combination of ashes and hair. In the UK, there are still many who would like to arrange traditional burial services for personal or religious reasons. The ALGORDANZA Hair Diamond provides an option for families to save some of their loved one’s hair and turn it into a cremation diamond for remembrance.
A minimum of 5g of hair is needed, a very small amount compared to turning ashes into a diamond. This is because hair naturally contains more carbon. The overall chemical composition of hair consists of 51% carbon. On average, 5g of hair can produce up to at least one large diamond, or 4 smaller diamonds.
