    Believe it or not diamonds on a small scale are pretty cheap.

    Someone made DIY version of diamond paste. The problem with this is that small diamond/rock-particles aren't healthy at all when inhaled :)

    Anyway the results seem pretty damn nice: http://inventgeek.com/Projects/DiamondGrease/overview.aspx

    Could be that either A) the commercial paste isn't as well done (may not even have actual diamonds/has less/has larger grain/what ever B) the guy who made it had no idea how to apply the pastes and the results are messed up. Or both.
