RAPAPORT... Scio Diamond Technology Corporation, a producer of lab-grown diamonds, got its 28th patent for gemstone production from chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond plate.

“This is the latest addition to our extensive patent portfolio, which ensures broad intellectual-property protection for our industry-leading diamond manufacturing processes,” Gerald McGuire, Scio Diamond’s chief executive officer, said in a statement February 3.

“Our proprietary CVD process allows us to produce stunning diamonds in color and size combinations that are seldom found in mines, such as fancy color pink diamonds that are prized for fine jewelry,” McGuire continued.

The company creates high-quality, type-IIa, single-crystal diamonds in a controlled laboratory setting. Stones include colorless, near colorless and fancy-color lab-grown diamonds in size, color and quality combinations that are “rare in earth-mined diamonds,” according to the statement. The group provides gems for jewelry and diamond materials for industrial applications.

Its technology delivered the first CVD single-crystal diamond plates, CVD-grown diamond gems and one-inch square single-crystal diamond wafers.
