Wife thinks that lab diamonds are different from normal diamonds.
Firstly, this isn't about getting my wife a diamond ring and this isn't about the proce of lab diamonds vs natural diamonds.
I'm trying to explain to my wife that lab diamonds and normal diamonds are the same chemically. The chrystal structure is repeated over and over again except for a few sparse places where there are impurities or a few places where the crystal structure is irregular.
She doesn't understand the above language, so I'm trying, and failing, to explain the above to her in different words.
She keeps saying that the two types of diamonds ds come from different places and they are made in different ways, so they are different. She says that there are many types of rice in the world, all of them are rice, but they are different.
How do I explain that diamond isn't like rice? I tried to explain that water is the same, but she says that different waters have different tastes. I told her that it's not the water, but other stuff in the water that gives the different tastes. That's further evidence to her that the waters are different, so the diamonds are different.
Her logic isn't correct but I can't seem to convince her of the truth. It's driving me crazy that I can't explain such a simple concept in a way that she can understand.
