Diamond Rough Photo Gallery

Page 8b

Cuttables, fine white parcels of octahedrons and dodecahedrons. Large gem quality diamonds.

These diamond rough parcels represent better quality original assortments. They are from different regions of the world and therefore have characteristics indigenous to those areas. We have purposely given the parcel weights and number of stones. Most of these stones have extremely desirable shape for high percentage yield manufacturing. The majority of stones shown are appropriate for the manufacture of round shaped diamonds. We can supply the diamond rough on this page in various size ranges according to availability.
