The global diamond industry has had to deal with a number of crises in recent years, but the emergence of synthetic diamonds may be its toughest challenge yet.
Researchers from the United States have successfully developed a new structure of nano diamond, planning to work with the government and enterprises to explore self-assembly system of new nano diamond and produce new components for quantum computers.
A Harvard research group announced the successful creation of solid metallic hydrogen. One of the keys for achieving the pressures needed was special treatment of the diamonds used in the diamond anvil.
Amid serious concerns raised by the global diamond industry over undisclosed mixing of 'lab-grown' diamonds with natural gems in India, it has been revealed that there has been a phenomenal rise, about 53%, in import of synthetic diamonds.
A small team of scientists working for De Beers is scrambling to stave off a looming threat that could tarnish the luster of natural-mined diamonds: high-quality man-made stones.
