The synthesis of diamonds from gas occurs in the region of metastability of diamond and is based on the orienting action of the surface forces of the primer on the nucleation processes [1, 2]. The growth of the priming diamond powders (natural and synthetic diamond) revealed a previously unknown phenomenon, namely anomalously large fractionization of stable isotopes of carbon.
