Diamonds for Industry
The extraordinary physical properties of diamond make it ideal for industrial applications. Lab-grown diamonds are preferred, because they deliver the consistency and quality required by precision applications.
Not every diamond has the clarity, color, shape or size suitable for fine jewelry, but is highly valued for industrial use. Diamond's astonishing thermal conductivity, very high band gap energy and extremely wide optical transparency come from the strong chemical bonds between carbon atoms and make it ideal for many industrial applications.
Eco Grown Diamond produces diamond material with chemical, physical and optical characteristics identical to mined diamond material.
