I knew about the manufacturing process that Russians had for making diamonds (perfect ones at that) and I have read about that process leaking out to others. Sarasota Florida USA had begun manufacturing a like product several years ago. But of course DeBeers wasn’t too happy about that and all these stories have been pretty much put to the quiet for the general public. I wonder now what will come out of this announcement of these Impact Diamonds that are obviously for technological uses?
