Rough Diamods

The availability of a supply of rough diamonds constitutes, by far, the primary precondition for the establishment of a successful secondary local diamond industry. Africa’s rising importance in the global rough diamond market is increasing with every passing day.
AL MAAS has collaborated with UNIQUE OVEARSEAS LIMITED a registered company that has long sought to establish a solid economic and commercial case for a primary market for rough diamonds in East and West coast of Africa.

There are several different types of rough stone in which we deal.


Sawable Stones

These are the most popular and have an octahedral shape (like two pyramids stuck together at the base). When you find yourself in the presence of a stone like this one in the African bush, you know that you have found something exceptional, both in its purity and in its whiteness: eternity than can be held in your hands. The rough diamond has balanced proportions the better the stones will be when cut and polished.

Coated Stones

The stones whose quality is unkwown at the time of finding because they are covered with a sort of skin that has to be removed during the cleavage. In the Central African Republic and West Africa this type of stone is very common.


Irregular Stones

These are octahedral or dodecahedral stones of irregular shape. They are carved directly, no need to cleave or saw them.

UNIQUE OVEARSEAS LIMITED exports these rough Diamonds to Al-Mass based at India from their office, which are legal, all Royalties and Taxes Paid Rough Diamonds, accompanied with Kimberley certificate.


Kimberley Process

Africa is a signatory to the Kimberley Process and, therefore, Al-Maas strictly adheres to its dictates.

The Kimberley Process certification scheme was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2003. The Process is designed to prevent the profits of diamond sales supporting violent or rebel movements against legitimate, It was specifically brought into being in response to conflicts in Africa, especially in Angola, Cote d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sierra Leone. The Process controls the production and trade of rough diamonds, and currently has 49 members that represent 79 countries which account for nearly the entire global production of diamonds - 99.8%.
As the Process is aimed at stemming the movement of so-called "blood diamonds," members are required to certify rough diamonds as "conflict-free," thereby excluding such diamonds from the stream practices, to generate real social value in the community, and to treat the environment with the utmost respect. To maintain compliance with these Principles, all Al-Maas clients must submit a rigorous annual self-assessment which is audited by a third party.
