BTW, Voldemort is described by Dumbledore at several points in the story
as being one of the most magically gifted and talented wizard ever. I
wonder why he could not recreate the Philosopher's Stone to achieve
immortality? Seems safer and less "destructive" than ripping your soul
into Horcruxes.

Far easier to destroy the Stone than a Horcrux. The Stone would need
to be hidden but easily accessed for continued use. A Horcrux can be
left alone for decades.
