Inspired by recent work to enhance the luminescence from diamond nanopillar structures, a team of researchers in Japan has discovered that "umbrella-shaped" diamond nanostructures with metal mirrors on the bottom are more efficient photon collec
Minister of mines and energy Obeth Kandjoze said yesterday at the International Diamond Conference held in Windhoek that 2000 workers were employed at the peak but that this number has been reduced to only 700 workers now.

Whether diamonds are faced with hard times of low price? Most people in the industry seem to agree that diamonds are facing the trend of low price, but some commentators think that the share price of diamond may rebound.
There is a difference between synthetic diamond and natural diamond all the time, because synthetic diamond is formed in a short period of time, but the age of natural diamond is very long.
Synthetic diamond crystals are of interest to many industrial sectors. Their unique properties make them a suitable material for numerous applications including lenses for high-energy laser optics, X-ray radiation detectors and ophthalmological scalpels.
Diamonds come in all colours with price tags to match -- ice-white, blue and pink attract high prices and stones with brown hues the least. But now that brown diamonds can be heat-treated to remove the darker colour to produce near-perfect colourless gems
Another incident of undisclosed synthetic diamonds has reportedly been detected in a major international diamond hub.
Diamonds may not be as rare as once believed, but this finding in a new Johns Hopkins University research report won't mean deep discounts at local jewelry stores.

Researchers from Harvard University calculate that using diamond or aluminum oxide solid nanoparticles to try this kind of "solar radiation management" which may be more effective, and less damage to the environment than sulphate.
Here are three ways to improve the sharpness of diamond saw blades - formula optimization, orderly arrangement of diamonds and diamond brazing.
High hardness and excellent physical and mechanical properties of diamonds make diamond tools become the indispensable and effective tools for processing all kinds of hard materials.
Exploratory mining is the process of testing an orebody with drill rod or casing tube to see if it contains useful minerals.
Nano diamond is very small crystal material, only the size of nanometer. Although they have the same crystal structure with diamonds, its properties are different compared with common diamond and synthetic diamond.
Licht calls his method as the "diamond" from the atmospheric air. This not only shows that carbon can be used in the preparation of diamond, but can also be used for the preparation of the high value products.
