|Lab Grown Diamond||Earth Mined Diamond|
|Lab Grown Diamonds grow through the same natural crystallisation process as mined diamonds, as well as share the same physical, chemical and optical properties.||Mined Diamonds are diamonds that have grown inside earth through geological processes from a carbon source and extracted by excavating several tonnes of earth.|
|They are Lab Grown Diamonds, mostly inside a reactor, treated to extreme heat, pressure and gases||Mined Diamonds were created millions of years ago out of carbon deposits, at a depth of over 150 kms into the the earth's mantle|
|Chemical & Physical properties; Same as natural diamonds||A Mineral composed of carbon; hard and adamantine|
|Price, 30-35% cheaper than mined diamonds||Very Expensive, 1 carat solitaire priced approx 5 thousand USD upwards|
|Quality Flawless Diamonds can me made in large numbers under lab condition & less inclusions||Flawless Diamonds are rare and expensive. High level of inclusions in lower grade diamonds|
|Lab Grown Diamonds are conflict free diamonds||Mined Diamonds are still smuggled out of conflict zone in africa.|
