"Diamond Rough - Rough Diamonds"
Rough Cleaning Services
Diamond Rough that has been freshly extracted from the earth needs to be properly cleaned. Cleaning must be done on a more extreme level for mined goods extracted from earthy mineral host rock such as kimberlite or lamprolite in order to have pure diamond rough free of external metallic or trace debris. Alluvial diamonds should also be cleaned properly but generally it is a less extreme process.
