What is the Best Way for a Do-It-Yourselfer to make a few good Diamonds? Can I just Heat some Methane and add Water?
I have a Wood Furnace that gets hotter than 1000 F and a tiny Camp Stove burning Pellets.
I have Propane for the Carbon. Water could be used to a little Hydrogen or Oxygen.
I would like to make a 1 carat Round Brilliant Cut perfect Diamond and a 1 1/2 inch Maltese Cross looking Diamond as perfect as possible.
I believe I could make the 1 carat Diamond in a 1/2 inch tube using a low quality Diamond as the substrate and target at the end of it. I would have to activate the gas mix moving through the tube just before the substrate. Do I need a Microwave or UltraViolet Light or something?
I need some Know-How and Inspiration.
