Caption: Artificial crystals researcher holding a sample of fianit, a type of artificial crystal, in the laboratory where it was first successfully produced. Fianit is the Russian name for cubic zirconia, which is used to produce imitation diamonds. The name fianit came from the Russian acronym, FIAN, for the Lebedev Physics Institute. It was here that a successful method for artificially creating cubic zirconia was developed in the 1970s. Photographed at the Lebedev Physics Institute, Moscow, Russia, in October 1976.
