tories. In bruting, a piece
of whole diamond, instead
of diamond powder, is used
to shape another diamond.
The final model will also be
produced by Amcoram. To-
day, bruting requires
employment of the full
weight of the bruter's body
against a hand-operated
machine.
"This machine will enable
one bruter to operate six to
eight machines and will in-
crease production. Every
diamond will be checked
under a microscope rather
than by feel, which will
lead to more efficient ex-
ploitation of raw materials,"
says Yarnitsky.
Yarnitsky's work was car-
ried out concurrently with
the growth of the Israeli
diamond industry. In the
1930's, Israel had only a
small cutting and polishing
industry, which was concen-
trated in Netanya. The
work force increased with
the arrival of diamond
workers who had escaped
from Europe in the 1940's.
By 1942, an estimated
2,000 people were employed
in the preparation of
polished diamonds.
Despite the difficulties
faced by Israeli industry as
a whole, the diamond in-
dustry continued to grow.
Exports reached over $500
million per year in 1970
and surpassed the billion
dollar mark in 1975.
Following a crisis in the
worldwide industry, exports
dropped temporarily, but
are once again rapidly
rising.

One cause of this renewed
growth was the reorganiza-
tion of the industry into a
larger number of smaller
manufacturing plants, in
response to the crisis of the
early 1980's. This diver-
sification increased the
need for manpower. The
number of workers em-
ployed in the industry has
fluctuated from a low of
3,000 during the depths of
the diamond recession to
approximately 9,000 today.
This figure is expected to
continue to rise, with some
industry experts predicting
a demand for about 2,000
new workers in the near
future.
As many experienced
workers reach retirement
age, there is a need to train
new ones. TO help meet this
need, Professor Yarnitsky
has written a textbook,
helped prepare a teaching
staff, established a cur-
riculum and even admin-
istered the first examina-
tions for a new vocational
training program currently
offered in four schools.
