Were there any instructions on where it had to be kept to get a diamond ;)

Somewhere warm all the time and compact.....No don't put it there, I meant a small oven.

Even with Hackaday I would've thought it would be Fools gold only, due to that missing percentage.

So would you say it is probably happening as we speak i.e people/governments actually creating the stuff ?

No. The alchemists of old could do it. Now we need a magnetron. And the power used, costs more than the gold.

I remember reading about a guy called David Hamill (I think that was the guy) who discovered a strange white powder that came from gold, a kind of precipitate that was supposed to have Very Very 'spiritual' qualities.

Quite possibly just hocum but who knows. It was called "White powder gold" and said to have potent Anti-Cancer qualities.
My point is, if true (and it is said to have been in use in ancient Egypt) then our Ancestors were truly the innovators and we are merely the regression part of the DNA coming through, which would explain our lack of 'break throughs'.

@ Lighthouse,

Yep. And he later discovered a way of re-creating the powder through the use of gold.
