> This seven-metre-tall machine can squeeze carbon into diamonds

OT but, is this a thing now? Diamonds can be entangled.

Don't know what you mean by entangled. They mention forming diamonds using the heat and pressure of the press, which is a well known technique to alter the crystal lattice between carbon atoms.

Does it take more energy than mining for diamonds?

It takes less human suffering.
