The Beethoven Diamond is made from the carbon obtained from a few strands of Beethoven's hair. It's one of three diamonds created, but the only one that will be available to the public for a cool million bucks. It's a little over a half carat, fancy blue and round cut. The company that created the diamond is Life Gem, who specializes in making diamonds from carbon of loved ones. People or animals, as long as they are a carbon based life form Life Gem will create a diamond.

"Now, after extensive research and development, we have discovered how to extract the carbon from a lock of hair," LifeGem said. "This advanced and delicate procedure has been specifically designed to capture almost all of the available carbon in a lock of hair. Our technology works only in a special high-nitrogen, low-oxygen atmosphere. We have refined this process to ensure the maximum available carbon for your LifeGem diamond(s)."
