Did you know that you can make diamonds using graphite?

Read this;

Graphite is also raw materials used to make synthetic diamonds. Perhaps you'd like to make a littel extra money by converting the graphite in your pencils into diamond(approximately, 1B of money i think.lol). If you so, you need to follow this presciption.(instruction)


Heat a sample of graphite to a temperature of 3,500•C. At the same time, place it under a pressure of 78,000,000 mm Hg-- Approximately 102,000 times atmospheric pressure. Maintain this pressure and temperature for 24 hours, and.. Presto! Outcomes a diamond!. Although the principle for producing synthetic diamonds is simple, you obviously cannot generate this great temperature and pressure in your backyard(unless you are in other planets). Natural deposits of graphite are found in sri lanka,china,mexico,north and south korea,austria, and throughout most of the world. 70% of graphite used in the U.S is made synthetically by heating petrouleum coke to 2,800•C in special Furnaces.
