Growth of synthetic diamonds

  1. Mar 14, 2016 #1
    I have been talking with some biohackers and have been discussing diamond coated magnetic implants. We know it can be and has been done but want to attempt to do so in a home setup. I wanted to see what you guys know about the topic and overall just say wether we should or not

    A question for you: Why would you want a magnetic implant? Anyway, creating synthetic diamonds involves an incredible amount of pressure and heat. There is also a method called chemical vapor disposition, which can actually be done at home quite easily, but the results can hardly be considered "beautiful". How big of a production are planning to make? What type of diamond are you looking for?

    Are you referring to growing diamonds, or installing implants?
