"Diamond me no diamonds."
Seems tome that Ferengis do something like that,
except that they sell to dessicated parts.

Subject: Those are diamonds that were his eyes
This is quite off topic except that I'm adding something like the
following to my TWL website.
Those are pearls that were his eyes
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
In Shakespeare's day people had to rely on a sea-change to turn their
loved ones into jewelry. Not so today! A company called LifeGem is
ready to turn the bodies of your relatives into a diamonds. Choose
from clear or selected colors.
As they say at their website:
A LifeGem is a certified, high quality diamond created from the carbon
of your loved one as a memorial to their unique and wonderful
life. [The carbon comes from the cremated ashes of the body.] The
LifeGem diamond is more than a memorial to visit on the weekends--it
is a way to embrace your loved one's memory day by day.
