Good luck, It is my understanding that most material found in
Canada that won't cut a 1/3 carat or better is simply sold off to
cutting houses that specialize in melee. There fore there is no
way to know where these goods come from.
I am beginning to believe that this is the case. I have not been able
to find any source of Canadian melee.
Really, this issue of diamonds provenance seems to be an ongoing
issue. funny how people think, perhaps someone out there knows of
a small cutter in Canada who might have some. But then how can you
ever be sure that his rough comes from Canada either.
Yes it is funny, the client wants Canadian or nothing. It is
beginning to sound like nothing.
