Dustin Scott Harrison of Gilbert, Arizona was working as a private contractor for the Department of Defense as an Intelligence Reconnaissance Surveillance Pilot. He is survived by his wife Hope Harrison, daughter Heaven, Stepsons Bryce, Jeremiah and Elias, mother Donna, brother Troy and Heide, nephews Trae, Tyler and Conner, nieces Isabella and Olivia.
Dustin was 47 years old and passed away just three weeks before this 48th Birthday. He always had a passion for aviation which led him to attend flight school and work as an air ambulance and a private pilot living in various cities from California, Oklahoma, Texas and Arizona. He loved to live his life to the fullest, enjoyed driving fast cars, dirt bikes, flying but mostly with his family.
Dustin paid the ultimate price for doing what he loved and protecting his country. He is a silent hero who will never be forgotten for his love and sacrifice. He and his wife, Hope, were each other’s soulmates. Hope describes Dustin as a sweet soul, quiet but courageous who will forever be a hero.
We'll share pictures, videos, and
of the process,
as we go.
Dustin's ashes are back at the Eterneva labs, and we are ready to begin the journey to becoming a diamond. Now, Dustin's ashes will be put into a crucible that will go through a purification process.
When that is finished, his ashes will be carbon in the form of graphite. This is the material we will put in the diamond growth cell to grow his diamond. In your next update, you’ll get to see the graphite as we open the crucible for the first time. Stay tuned!
Dustin’s ashes have been purified and are now pure carbon in the form of graphite. The purified ashes are on their way to Germany where the best of the best memorial diamond growth scientists work. There, they will put the graphite into a growth cell and then into a machine that mimics the earth’s mantle in pressure and temperature. Soon, we’ll be sending an update of his rough diamond!
"Just do what’s right."
Dustin’s rough diamond is beautiful! Now, the diamond will head to Antwerp, Belgium to be hand cut by Eterneva’s master diamond cutters. Master diamond cutters spend decades perfecting their craft, and hand cut every single facet of the diamond. Diamonds have upward of 58 facets. In fact, one of the world’s youngest master diamond cutters will be working on Dustin’s diamond. He is 56 years old.
Here is the rough diamond!
Dustin’s diamond has been cut, polished, graded and engraved. It is absolutely perfect, and so brilliant! This remarkable transformation and journey is almost complete. Next, the diamond will begin planning for the homecoming.
