The three major importers of Russian diamonds last year were Belgium with 18.8 million carats ($2.5 billion), India with 5.9 million carats (over $590 million) and Israel with 3.5 million carats ($384 million).

 

Diamond production in Russia came to 35.14 million carats in 2011, the ministry said.
