Wearable gems made from human cremains on the horizon -- Turning carbon remains of a cremation into gemstones. Interesting idea. I'm not sure that I'm sold on it, but ya know, having a box of ashes sit around doesn't quite seem as cool as having a gemstone made of their remains. Oh, but can you see it now...lawsuits over the accidental mixing of cremains. Who does the diamond actually belong to?? Oh, and how can you possibly know how much of a carat weight one will make? When I die, will I make a really BIG diamond? Hmmm...time will tell.
