    i'm not familiar with how cubic zirconia is manufactured, but i was under the impression that temperature and pressure were involved (basically the natural process but sped up in a lab) but you might be right.

    3d printing is a disruptive technology, and we don't yet know of it's full potential.
    people will find new weird and wonderful applications that we can't even imagine today.
