While the MPCVD technique has been used over the last decade to successfully grow small single crystal, colorless diamonds at various research facilities around the world in a limited scale for scientific studies, scalable growth of consistent quality diamonds has been almost impossible to achieve.
Like any new and potentially disruptive technology, MPCVD grown diamonds have been perceived both as an opportunity and as a threat.
MPCVD doesn't involve synthesis at any stage of the diamond growth process, and leads to the formation of diamond in its native element form, just like earth-derived diamonds.
