Scio Diamond - Diamond Mosaics In Production

GREENVILLE, SC, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Scio Diamond Technology Corporation (OTC-BB: SCIO.OB) announced today that its patented Mosaic Diamond growth process is in production, hitting another milestone in its quest to become a world leader in the mass production of cultured diamond.

"This is one of our most significant achievements yet," says Joe Lancia, Scio's CEO.  "Simply put, we are now growing diamond plates of significant size.  These larger plates of single crystal diamond are unmatched anywhere to our knowledge, especially with regard to thickness."

Scio's operational challenge every day is now to improve both quality and quantity in a structured production environment.  "We decided to skip over our S3724 technology and go directly to our one-of-a-kind Mosaic technology," said Mike McMahon, Scio's COO.  The concept in both technologies is to grow diamond on large seed stock.  "We had the large Scio-produced mosaic seed stock in inventory and the confidence in our operational personnel to grow diamond with that stock," McMahon continued.

Lancia notes that with success in growing multiple plates of diamond in the size of 4.5mm x 18mm x 3.2mm deep, both mass production and fabrication are greatly simplified.

About SCIO Diamond

Scio Diamond employs a patent-protected chemical vapor deposition process to produce high-quality, single-crystal diamonds in a controlled laboratory setting, with such diamonds referred to as "lab-grown" or cultivated diamonds. The diamonds have the identical chemical, physical and optical properties as diamonds found in the earth, and the company's highly controlled manufacturing process enables it to produce very high-quality, high-purity, high volume, single-crystal colorless, near colorless and fancy colored diamonds.

Scio's technology permits it to produce lab-grown diamond in size, color, and quality combinations that are very rare in nature. SCIO intends to offer diamonds in limited quantities as jewelry and in the technology arena as the material operating system of the future.
