Zirconia melts at 2715C
Hot, but not millions of pounds worth of hot.

WOW !!...that is still very very very hot !!!...THANK YOU BC !

Sorry, but Zirconia is NOT fake diamonds... It's not a real diamond either, Zincornia is Zincornia

Fake diamonds are actually carbon based diamonds which are created by using pressure, high temperature and stuffs, but still uses carbon as it's component.

Instead, maybe you want to search for "synthetic diamonds"

If you make artificial diamonds out of carbon with very high temperatures and pressures they are diamonds. Perfectly real diamonds- not fakes.

If you cut cubic zirconia and mount it in the way that jewelers do with diamonds snd (here's the important bit) you say that it is diamond, then the zirconia is afake diamond.

Why dig up a two year old thread to say something that's wrong anyway?

The test explained by the questioner was actually for synthetic diamonds. Therefore, using those tests against Zincornia wouldn't work. That's it.

And no, synthetic diamonds are different from real ones, and there are many tests to confirm it.

I don't know the date of this thread, but I saw it on the front of the sub forum, and the site didn't warn me about this post being old when I click reply. It should, shouldn't it?

It's possible to tell artificial diamonds from natural ones, but that's just a problem with our engineering. If you made near perfect diamonds (and, in particular if you kept the concentration of metals in them low) they would be identical to natural diamonds.
