A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND: Now you can have your human best friend turned into a diamond! A company in Chicago called LifeGem offers to turn the purified carbon from a cremated body into a synthetic diamond. Presumably, the more accurate appellation "DeathGem" struck them as too macabre. Check out the creepy animation on their website. The dissolving text goes:

I'll be there when you're sleeping
I'll be there when you awake
I'll be there when you're laughing
I'll be there when you need me most
I'll be there Forever.
Just what I want, to turn my dearly departed into an eternal stalker.
