Markets in everything, Beethoven edition

A company called Life Gem is making three diamonds out of DNA taken from Beethoven’s hair, allowing a few lucky people to walk around with literally a piece of the famous composer on their hands.  Creepy.

The company can also make diamonds out of less famous corpses, allowing you to carry around a piece of your departed loved one in bling form forever and ever.  Or at least until you croak and get turned into a diamond.  It’s the circle of life!

Here is the link.  And while we’re on the markets topic, here is a neat idea from Japan.
