Plasmability and HRA Group Form Strategic Partnership

In August 2022, Plasmability LLC announced that it entered into a strategic partnership with the HRA Group to cut, polish and distribute its lab-grown diamonds exclusively through HRA.

The basis for this alliance is rooted in the companies’ shared passion for being market leaders in product development and manufacturing excellence. In this collaboration, Plasmability will grow premium CVD lab-grown rough diamonds and HRA will exclusively cut, polish and distribute Plasmability’s diamonds into the market under Clarity Diamond.

Plasmability | Clarity Diamond

Austin, Texas

We opened our doors in 2001 to service the semiconductor industry. That eventually led to developing the technology for growing diamonds, and we discovered that with our team of Ph.D.s, engineers and software designers, we could grow a better diamond.

We are committed to producing the most beautiful, largest lab-grown diamonds that can be produced, and we’ll keep innovating and making our diamonds better because that’s what we’ve invested in, and frankly, that’s how we’re wired.

HRA Group

Vancouver, BC, Canada

The HRA Group is a 40-year-old global company spanning the diamond supply chain from trading to manufacturing, finished diamond jewelry to jewelry retail.

Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, our team takes pride in our ability to challenge ourselves to find new solutions to address the changing needs of our industry and partners. We have a particular interest in and focus on innovation and technology in the diamond industry.

2001

Started service work for the local Austin semiconductor industry.

2006

Received our first patent for a sensor that measured water quality. This new sensor was much more reliable than what had previously been available. Thousands have been sold and are still in service.

2008

We shipped our 100th refurbished semiconductor manufacturing system and were well on the road to developing our product line.

2010

We released our first product, called the Penulator™. The Penulator product family has now been shipped around the world with thousands of satisfied customers and a set of related patents.

2012

We opened a new HQ to accommodate growth, and expanded our service center. We were also starting R&D on CVD diamond growing by that time, investigating how to grow diamonds using several different technologies.

2015

We were awarded our first SBIR (Small Business Innovation Resarch) contract, and over the next few years we formed a partnership with Michigan State's Fraunhofer Center for Coatings and Diamond Technology.

2016

By 2016 we had created a 3rd generation diamond-growing machine, and at that point our development increased rapidly.

2017

Our first patent related to CVD diamond was issued for a novel way to produce material with a toroidal plasma processing system.

2021

Our facility has been populated with a line of highly productive diamond CVD systems, and we are routinely generating material that becomes high-quality gems.

2022

Launch partnership between Plasmability (Clarity Diamond) and HRA Group.

Our path to lab-grown diamonds was not through the jewelry industry but from the semiconductor industry.

In 2001 we started doing service work for the local Austin semiconductor industry. Before then, local semiconductor companies relied on the original equipment manufacturers to maintain the ultra-complex, multi-million dollar manufacturing equipment critical for their operations.

By focusing on quality and strong relationships with these manufacturers, we were able to break into the market. Within one year, we were shipping products globally, including entire processing systems. Customers put an immense amount of trust in us to provide equipment to expand their computer chip manufacturing capability.

Solving customer problems led to the development of new in-house capabilities, innovation, and many patents. Soon we were looking for ways to use the technology to expand beyond the semiconductor industry.

It eventually became clear that the innovation we were doing and the knowledge we had gained to solve semiconductor equipment problems was the groundwork for building diamond-growing machines.

Since 2012, while growing our semiconductor business, we have been doing R&D on growing diamonds using Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). We've had some exciting technology breakthroughs that ultimately have led to our ability to grow very large, high-quality diamonds consistently.
