Chinese companies have shown interest in the synthetic gem technologies of the Material Science Center of the national academy of Sciences of Belarus.
Belarusian scientists and Chinese businessmen are studying various cooperation schemes. Belarus is ready to share its technologies on beneficial terms. The partnership with Chinese companies will help increase the export of Belarusian synthetic emeralds and promote theses products on the Asian market.
The capacities of the Center allow making about 10,000 carats of gems per year. The Center fully satisfies the demand of Belarusian jewelry makers and can sell synthetic precious stones to other countries.
The demand for synthetic gems is on the rise. Synthetic gems look absolutely like natural precious stones having the same optical properties and transparency. Besides, they have fewer defects. Natural emeralds are unique and rather rare stones. Their deposits are very limited. Therefore, more and more foreign jewelry makers prefer synthetic gems.
