Beethoven's hair turned into £500k diamond - 4 hours left on eBay!

I don't know if this is 'old' news - if so, I've only just read it. They can make diamonds from decomposing hair?

You know, if I had the cash, I'd buy it.

If you had the money, you could have your entire body turned into diamond upon your death. It might give "blood diamonds" a whole new meaning.

Oh snap, I didn't see the "k" at the end of the 500. That changes things.

Dude that is so META. I love it.

Still, I hope they saved some hairs for the DNA cloning. Either that or invent a time machine so I can hear Beethoven school those other pianists at the improv competitions.

Anything with carbon can be turned into a diamond.

One of the first things turned into diamonds during the first experiments I believe was peanut butter.

Thats. Awesome.

I wonder if it would be at all disturbing for me to propose to my girlfriend with a diamond made from my hair...
