The Atlantic published an interview with Rinaldo Willy, founder of Algordanza AG, a Swiss company that makes diamonds out of human ashes. Explaining how these diamonds derive their color, the article states:

Instead of being predetermined, the color of each Algordanza diamond results from the specific combination of trace elements present in an individual’s body. Fake teeth, titanium hips, or the remnants of chemotherapy can all impact color. Nitrogen lends a yellow hue. Traces of phosphorescent chemicals can produce diamonds that glow in the dark. The blue cast that so often reminds families of the eyes of the deceased is the result of boron in the ashes, though an excess will turn a diamond black, as it did in one recent order.
