THE EVENING STAR.
The H?Vftt Artificial Ol?M?nd?.
Within the past year some very flae imita
bone of diamonds hat* been put npon the
New York market, tar surpassing in impidity
and retractive powers the best pastes formerly
known to the public under variona deceptive
names. The new imitations, like the old ones,
purport to be species of cheap ??diamonds"
from the gold-producing countries of the world,
tint the appellations are purely fancllul, for
they are only superior articles of paste. Some
dealers claim them to be a kind of quartz, but
that is trne only to the extent that pulverized
quanz enters into their composition, mixed
?* ith borax, alumina, glncina, arsenic, oxide of
tin or other ingredients. They are not cut
from the solid quartz, which is less brilliant
than the common pastes. The exact process of
making these highly successful imitations is
known only to the manufacturers?in Paris or
Germany, for not one is made in this country,
so far as known?and is, of course, jealously
guarded by them.
No respectable jeweller attempts to pass off
paste as diamonds. Swindlers may sometimes
buy fine specimens from the dealers and trade
them away at the regular diamond price; but j
such cases must be rare, for any person of the i
least crmreon sense, who thouehtof purcha
sing a diamond from an individual not in the i
trade, would be sure to consult a jeweler or
other expert in precious stones, by whom the
fraud would b# detected in an instant. No
past?? can stand all the tests of the diamond.
I*s warmth to the touch, its retention of moist- j
ure, the ease with which it can be scratched
by agate or tepaz, the minute air-bubbles
which a microscope discovers in its depths,
ail prove it is an imitation. But the skillful
eye can tell the real diamond from the false at ;
a glance. The former has a hardness of lustre, !
a cold glitter of refracted light, which the finest
pastes just miss. None but the most exp*>
rienced judpes can retain a memory of the icy
lambency or adamantine splendor of the gen
uine gem, so that they can always apply It as i
Ordinary judges will be deceived by the ira- '
proved pastes; and any lady, who might be
expected from the richness of her attire to wear
diamonds, may swing out the pastes from her
ears, or displ.ty them on her fingers, without
fear of detection, till the brightness of the Imi
tation has departed: for it goes sooner or later,
wi'h the most careful usage. The permanent
lustre of crystalized carbon is its one precions
wholly Inimitable quality. This permanence
or stability, it may be remarked, characterizes
all the precious things of nature, gold, silver,
ivory, and every one of the gems. Imitations,
which are almost perfect in other respects, fail |
in that. It is nature's last, impassable barrier i
So lar with the paste manufacturers.
A more interesting branch of the subject is
the chemical, or strictly scientific production
of diamonds from their native material carbon
Some of the first chemists in the world have
devoted years of toil to this task, without suc
cess. Microscopic diamonds have been made
or are reported to have been. Becquerel, a
French chemist, produced minute crystaliza- j
tions having the hardness of diamonds, by the i
slow action of electricity on box-wood char- !
coal (a very pure form of carbon,) but they i
were nearly black. Another Frenchman last !
year claimed to have made diamonds, by the |
reaction of phosphorus on sulphide of carbon,
both being nr d*r water. The sulphide of car- I
bon dissolved the phosphorus, and the latter, !
it was said, slowly combined with the sulphur,
treeing the carbon which crystalized out. j
Nobody ever saw the diamonds?but the maker. !
Many experiments have been made with this I
remarkable fluid (sulphide of carbon,) and
from it, if from any source, the artificial dia
monds most come.
It consists of pure sulphur and pore carbon,
in the proportions of about five of the former
to one of the latter. The carbon ingredient is,
in fact, diamonds in a state of fluidity, pos
sessing the wonderful refractive power or the
re8l gems. The exceeding brilliancy of the
sulphide of carbon adapts it peculiarly for use
in prisms, for spectral analysis?that new de
Sartment of modern science by which some of
te most extraordinary discoveries of the age
have been made. Now. if it were possible to
isolate the carbon and let It crystalize out,
diamonds could be made. Ordinary attempts
to decompose the fluid bv electricity, give a
deposit of Enlphur on one pole, and of black
charcoal in small grains, on the other. Silver
has a powerful affinity for sulphur; and an
?nglieh chemist tried the effect of immersing
tiiat metal in the fluid, hoping to separate the
carbon in that way, but nothing came of it af
ter ten years' experimenting,
A French chemist has brought out, daring
the present year, an entirely new process ef
making diamonds directly from charcoal, by
the action of borax, which he claims dissolves
the carbon at a high*heat, yielding one pound
of brilliants of the first water per bushel of
charcoal. It is further said that a patent for
this pro^B^Wsbeen taken ont bjTthe.inventor
for the United States, as well as fqr all other
countries where "sparklers" -are m requqft!
Such are the extraordinary ' yarns" to whicp
scientific journals sometimes give currency,
probably fortirefun Of ehe thing, since the edi
tors must know that nothing can be mors ab
surd than the alleged discovery. ; ?
It is not quite safe to predict what sciericfe
will not do: but this -mnch>jnfLy be said, that
the prospect of making, diamonds artificially*
from carbon, except in Nature's secret and aw
ful laboratory of the ages, is about as flatter
ing as that of the discovery of the ??philoso
pher's stone."?Nexu York Journal of Commerce.

bility can alone befriend him. He falls into the
hands of ignorant and designing pretenders, who,
incapable of curing, filch hia pecuniary substance,
keep him trifling month after month, or as long &a
