This is a high-pressure, reversible process that turns regular coal into synthetic diamonds. These diamonds are not fit to be worn as jewelry by gentlepersons, though they can be used as cheap paste to impress. Rather, synthetic diamonds has a number of industrial uses, the chief of which is as a fuel compactor.

Coal compacted into diamond form takes much less space and is much easier to store than raw coal. By reversing the process before burning it, the fuel efficiency of a coal-burning power plant is increased by a factor equal to the reliability of the diamond crystalizer. This efficency increase is not cumulative with that of a Coal Intensifier.

The crystalizer itself weights ten tons and requires ten power points. It can convert ten tons of coal into diamonds per day for each reliability point of the device.
