9. Does ADTEC offer any employment opportunities?

No, we have a very small staff and are not looking to expand at this time.

10. What is the average price of a diamond?

Its amazing how many times this question is asked of us! Because of the vastly differing values, its impossible to set an average. Some industrial diamonds (boart) are as little as US$1 per carat while some special diamonds are worth many millions per carat. This would give an average of "some" millions of US Dollars which is totally meaningless.

11. What discounts and deductions are built into the prices?

Trade discounts of between 60% (for a 0.30ct M I3) and 22% (for a 10.00ct D IF) are applied to the value of the polish you should recover from the rough diamond. Polishing costs of US$30-70/ct (depending on size and quality) are also deducted. A profit margin of 10% is finally applied to give the final pricing.
