Diamonds: Much More Than Just a Rock, But a Powder As Well

What can you think if someone removed a handful of small stones from their pocket, revealed them to be diamonds, and proceeded to crush them into fine dust? Many may think they're crazy, but that's because they do not understand that the diamond abrasive market answers for a big percentage of the worldwide diamond market.

It might not seem obvious, but did you realize that no more than 20% of the diamonds actually mined are used for jewelry? About 80% of the diamonds mined are not ideal for use as jewelry. They may be unclear, totally opaque, or too small - but those are hardly flaws in the eyes of the industrial market.

When diamond powder can be used, it's typically for cutting and grinding materials like glass, ceramic, tiles, and other gemstones. To cut these materials, diamond abrasive powder is bonded to materials just like the drill or saw - allowing more accurate and effective cutting or grinding with something a now diamond covered drill bit, saw, or sander.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, when diamond powder is employed for polishing it's placed on the material with as low as a cloth, that will be then used to polish away scratches and abrasions. It has allowed car service centers to get rid of scratches from windshields, shine priceless antique collectibles, and professionally polish other diamonds and gemstones.
