Analysis: The total world natural diamond production was down by 1 million carats in 2001, in large part due to a decrease in Australian production.

Overall gem production was up by 5.9 million carats, while overall industrial production was down 7.6 million carats. Upon closer examination, it is clear that these figures are a result of Congo’s new evaluation of its production. While previous years had Congo producing nearly three times as many industrial carats than gem, this year its production was evenly split between the two categories. It seems to us that the Congo has changed its evaluation of its production to include 50% in the so-called near-gem category, which can be cut in India or other low cost labor areas.
