Diamond group Aether has successfully created gemstone quality diamonds out of air, which will launch on the company’s website in December.
Using the company’s protected technology, Aether converts excess carbon dioxide air pollution in the atmosphere into “beautiful precious stones”.
With this process, Aether said it will be able to “simultaneously clean the environment and further its vision of providing a better future for the planet and the people who inhabit it”.
Aether said its “commitment to radical transparency and desire to correct the existing shortcomings of the diamond industry” has driven the new innovation.
Ryan Shearman, CEO of Aether said: “Amid global climate change and all of the other challenges 2020 has brought with it, we believe there is currently great opportunity for high-minded doers to step in and help shape the future.
“Now more than ever, forces for true and lasting change are coalescing to transform our world into one where massive positive advancements for humanity and the planet are truly possible.
He added: “Aether is proud to be a part of that change for good as the creator of the world’s first gem quality diamonds from air.
“We’re committed to the unprecedented modern alchemy of turning air pollution into precious stones, and committed to serving as a beacon for integrity and transparency in the diamond industry, where so many others have fallen short on that promise to consumers.”
