The diamond and specialty minerals stocks box score on Friday was a rousing 104-52-144 as the TSX Venture Exchange added 13 points to 745 and polished diamond prices were flat. Rough diamond prices fell 0.2 per cent last week, ending -- or at least pausing -- the slow but steady gains posted from mid-spring until now, according to Paul Zimnisky's global rough diamond price index.
