Dad turns dead son into diamond

News Desk,  bdnews24.com


In a first-of-its-kind case in Italy, a grieving father had his dead son eternally preserved by getting the 20-year-old's ashes transformed into a diamond, Indian news agency PTI reported.


The father had his son's body exhumed and cremated before sending the ashes off to Switzerland so they could be compressed into the gemstone, the agency said.

According to the PTI report the young son, killed in a car crash earlier this year, had already been buried in his hometown of Treviso, in northern Italy, when his 55-year-old dad came up with the idea.

Remembrance diamonds are created by filtering and refining the carbon found in cremated ashes, then secured in a chamber, where intense pressure and a temperature similar to that of a volcano are applied, creating a synthetic diamond, 'The Local' reported.

The process can cost as much as $18,000, PTI quoting 'New York Daily News', said.

The father recently received the synthetic 'Remembrance Diamond' after an eight-month weight.

Isn't it weird? There are a thousand other means to keep his son's memory alive.

What amazes me is the 'Love' of the father.

Obviously mysterious but that mystery may can be explained but the Love and emotion of a father can't be.......

Dear N. S. Tonmoy

True but the love showed here is not an expression you can see regularly, right? So, people find it weird, amazing, interesting, excessive, and many others. To me, it is scary and is against my religious belief. Good observation by the way.
