Diamond is one of the hardest known materials. Diamond can tolerate high levels of radiation and does not trigger an immune response. These attributes make it useful in construction, nuclear engineering, electronics and medicine. In 2013, industry used approximately 1,500 tons of diamond, 99 percent of which were lab-grown. Growing diamonds in a lab has come a long way since its beginning in the early ‘50s, greatly reducing the human and environmental toll of the diamond industry by sustainably culturing diamonds without the destructive use of mining.
