How large can the diamonds get? How did technology improve in order to create diamonds larger than 0.40 carat?

Are you able to recycle the diamonds?

Can/will you make colored diamonds, aka those with impurities?

Hey thanks for answering! That's interesting about boron, and makes me curious if you could create never-before-seen diamond colors to increase possible conductivity or even for other uses. Seems like quite the expensive alternative to silicon. I'd take a purple, though!

By recycling diamonds, I guess I meant if there was a quantity of discarded gems or a mass of industrial stones no longer used, could you "melt" them and regrow it back into something gemmy and more valuable? Like aluminum recycling or something.

Worms really do wonders for that sort of thing.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone
