NRP Stone is a publically traded diamonds and precious metals company located near Salt Lake City, Utah. In first quarter 2020, NRP Stone, Inc. acquired Rare Metals and Gems Investors. This acquisition included all assets, contracts, and agreements to exclusively market and distribute two products: white diamonds and gold. The transaction also included one ton of Luxium ore concentrate valued at $1.5 million for research and the manufacture of a unique, atomically engineered, silver metal for jewelry and industrial applications.
Our diamond and gold products are purchased below market directly from mines; as well as from distributors. Using our own diamond cutters and polishers, NRP Stone is positioned to provide highly competitive prices to its retail customers, jewelry distributors, and investors. NRP Stone is also positioned to fund, develop, and jointly manufacture other products. Two additional products have been tested and found to be advantageous to NRP Stone’s growth and success: colored diamonds, and a next-generation, engineered-metal trademarked as Luxium. We are pursuing funding jointly owned and operated expanded manufacturing our products with the goal of becoming a fully vertically integrated firm. NRP Stone’s initiative includes selling territorial marketing rights in certain foreign markets and to conduct its own retail and wholesale operations in North America.
-Marketing and Manufacturing Agreements and Rights:
NRP Stone possesses an exclusive worldwide marketing agreement for white diamonds and gold. The Company’s funding agreements are to yield jointly owned and operated manufacturing companies for both colored diamonds and Gen2 Luxium. NRP Stone’s initiative is to sell worldwide territorial marketing rights in certain foreign markets and to conduct its own retail and wholesale operations in North America.
Our products are derived from Mother Earth’s natural processes…with a technological twist. The vast majority of all the world’s diamonds remain unfinished by Mother Earth. They are brown in color because they were not given enough time, heat, and pressure to finish them into naturally occurring white and colored diamonds. As a result, after these brown diamonds are unearthed, they are sold to manufacturers to be crushed and used for industrial tools, including diamond drills, saws and abrasives. However, with proprietary technology, brown diamonds can be finished into their highest and best potential, white and colored gemstones, that are considered by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) as “natural processed diamonds.” It was not until recent years that brown and colored diamonds were graded by the GIA and considered for use in jewelry. With time, heat, and pressure, these brown diamonds can become white, as well as any color of the rainbow, depending upon their makeup. These brown diamonds can be finished into gemstones without dyes, radiation, or synthetic processes.
-Raw and Finished Diamonds:
Our buyers purchase raw and cut white diamonds, as well as inexpensive brown diamonds, from worldwide markets. Raw white diamonds are cut by our diamond cutters and polishers and then are graded and prepared for sale. Raw brown diamonds are graded and assessed before they are purchased to determine their finished colors. Proprietary technology is then used to replicate Mother Earth’s natural processes to finish these diamonds. When our inexpensive raw brown diamonds are finished, they become beautiful white or colored gemstones, in all color of the rainbow. The most precious are extremely rare, blue diamonds. NRP Stone expects to create a distribution network to sell finished, cut, diamonds to jewelry outlets. Customers who have purchased these finished diamonds have already expressed a desire to purchase jewelry-grade Luxium for gemstone settings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, broaches, and the like.
NRP Stone’s second product is gold. Gold’s usages range from fine jewelry to electronics to aeronautics. The Company’s supplier is expected to purchase raw gold in all its forms directly from mines, thus obtaining best pricing for its jewelry settings, minted coins, and industrial distribution, including nanoparticles.
NRP Stone’s third product is called Luxium. It is a proprietary, atomically formulated, silver-based, metal that can be used for jewelry and industry. Because Luxium is .99% silver, it has silver’s conductivity, but it also has some other attractive features. It has the luster of chrome, is harder than silver, and most importantly, it resists tarnish. As a result, Luxium has distinct advantages over other metals, including silver itself. For jewelry, it does not tarnish like silver and can be made in multiple colors that can also be brushed. For industry, especially in data and electrical transmission, it has great conductivity but again does not tarnish like silver. Luxium fills the wide gap between the cost of silver and gold used as jewelry settings, as well as potentially replacing, changing, or enhancing many industrial applications. As a result, many applications in billion dollar industries have been identified for its usage. Lab and market testing for usage and acceptance has begun and show favorable results. Luxium will be available in two forms, granulated solid and liquid nanoparticles.
-The Science Behind Luxium:
Luxium was designed and engineered by three metallurgical engineers and scientists. One metallurgist has designed other metallic processes for minting coins and for the use of titanium in the jewelry industry. They have worked together for several years in the area of complex ores and elemental extractions from those ores. One of the scientists is an engineer who holds a PHD in chemical engineering with elemental metals. The three scientists combined their talents and knowledge and through years of corroboration discovered and have created a new metal that may be proven to be one of the most remarkable discoveries for industrial usages.
The base of Luxium is .999 fine silver, the world’s best-known natural conductor of electricity and heat. Formulating and combining silver with other elements in a proprietary procedure and process created this engineered metal. The combined efforts of scientists resulted in a new metal that has the natural finished look like chrome, though it can also be formulated to be colored, and has conductive properties similar to silver. It can be produced in a solid bulk form and also reduced to nanoparticle form.
The process for producing Luxium has been formulated and refined in a way that we believe cannot be reverse engineered. The know-how in the production of Luxium is as important as its atomic formulation. Because of these and Luxium’s extensive testing and years of scientific attempts to reverse engineer Luxium, the producer’s scientists believe that there is no need to file patents, which disclose proprietary information to promote reformulations, theft, and product duplication. This is expected to protect the proprietary nature and manufacture of Luxium and will greatly discourage copycat companies from entering into the Company’s marketplace.
Luxium has many desirable features. It is more brilliant, or has a greater luster, in its appearance (but can be sold in different colors), is harder than silver, has the conductivity and lacks resistance like silver, and has a melting point greater than 2,100o F. Luxium can therefore be positioned as an alternative substitute for jewelry and many industrial applications that use silver and gold. It can also be positioned to have intrinsic value like precious metals.
Luxium can be used for jewelry because of its hardness, shiny chrome appearance (though it can be colored) and its resistance to tarnish. These qualities plus its conductivity make Luxium a great candidate for a wide range of industrial uses. The advantage of Luxium over existing metals is staggering. For example: When the US government built its first atomic bombs, all the windings and wirings were made of silver. Why? Because it was cheaper than gold, harder than copper, and is the world’s best conductor.
-Conductivity of the top five metals is rated from highest as follows:
Silver 1.59 X 10-8
Copper 1.68 X 10-8
Gold 2.44 X 10-8
Aluminum 2.65 X 10-8 (Aluminum alloy is used for high tension electrical lines)
Conductivity of Luxium, like silver, is rated well above copper, gold, and aluminum. This makes Luxium a candidate for use with electricity. Electrical transmission lines for the power grid worldwide are made of one and one eighth (1 1/8) inch twisted aluminum stands reinforced with steel and silicon for strength. Aluminum was chosen because it is readily available, has a comparative high tensile strength and can be purchased at a relative cheaper cost. The problem with aluminum is that electrical resistance over these lines costs power companies billions of dollars per year in the loss of wattage for every 1% resistance.
With the introduction of nanotechnology, a Luxium application can create a dynamic solution for cost savings to electrical transmission companies alone. Electricity travels around a metal conductor, therefore an outside coating could decrease resistance. Luxium researchers are currently working on the final steps of the nanoparticle application of Luxium that will bind with existing aluminum power lines.
The Company has identified several immediate markets for testing and penetration of Luxium as follows:
Non-Acid Storage Batteries
Healthcare and Life Science
The Company’s approach to all its markets is to provide Luxium samples and ideas for usage. It expects that these potential customers will do their own R&D to determine Luxium’s usages and applications. Management has contacts in several industries, including electrical transmission. As is noted in the Management section, two individuals currently work with electric companies. The Company expects to provide exposed electrical wire applications and receive a negotiated portion of the savings or profit from greater conductivity or reduced resistance that transmission companies achieve. The Company also expects to approach wire manufacturers in developing a coating application as part of new wire manufacturing for electrical transmission companies.
Management also has contacts with many of the major aerospace engineering firms who work as government contractors and for private institutions who have their own R&D departments.
NPR Stone will continue to fund the R&D and enhancements to its products. It is developing plans for a mint, minting coins in gold and Luxium. It is also in developing plans for expanding colored diamond and Luxium manufacturing.
