Chi­nese com­pa­nies have shown in­ter­est in the syn­thetic gem tech­nolo­gies of the Ma­te­rial Sci­ence Cen­ter of the national academy of Sciences of Be­larus.

Economy of Belarus - - IN THE SPOTLIGHT -

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.
