A Turkish company, which manufactures diamonds in laboratory conditions by recreating the natural process of creation of single crystal diamonds, is considering making an investment in Bulgaria. Though it has not settled on a location, it is looking at the city of Plovdiv. The decision is expected to be made by the end of the year. The Bulgarian Investment Agency says the successful implementation of the project will create approximately 100 new jobs. Laboratory diamonds are used in jewellery, but also in a number of industries, such as chip manufacture, quantum sensors, optics and detectors for high-tech sectors.
