On the same day that I write about a baby carriage and Barbie doll covered in polished diamonds, it’s hard to imagine that only an hour later I would be authoring a post about an even more decadent use for precious gems. But here we are: An Iranian-American reality TV star is now hawking bottled water with actual diamonds inside that are supposed to be gulped down with the rest of the beverage! No kidding! Shahs of Sunset star Asa Soltan says that she first came up with the concoction for her own personal use, and is now ready to share it with the rest of the world, or at least the parts of it that can be convinced of its nutritional – and spiritual – benefits.
Soltan does not content herself with mere microscopic shavings, which are obviously less expensive – she picks out large diamonds to be distilled into drink form, claiming that they “have a different type of energy”. According to Soltan, they “contain genetic molecular information from the beginning of time”. Ms. Soltan, do you know what else contains molecular information from the beginning of time? The first atom in existence, also the most common substance in the universe: Hydrogen. And guess what constitutes two out of every three water molecules? Yes, that’s right, Hydrogen. So why dilute it with mere carbon, only number six on the periodic table, five notches down?
