De Beers, the world’s largest diamond producer, is using a Zwick compression testing machine to analyze how diamonds break during mining. Diamond being brittle causes problems during mining, as comminution, separation and transport processes can all damage this valuable product. When using software packages to simulate diamond breakage during mining processes, an important characteristic is the breakage function. This distribution gives a measure of how easily a diamond is damaged and has, until now, not been fully quantified.
