I haven't visited their web site in a while, but they always used to say that the Black and Green styli have 3-piece cantilevers, and the rest of the styli have 4-piece cantilevers.
It is true that all of the Prestige styli share the same bonded elliptical diamond. I believe it's a .3x.7mil for all of them.
In the not so distant past, they offered a much wider variety of diamond shapes and sizes, such as .5mil spherical, .3x.6mil elliptical, .3x.7mil elliptical, "Special Grado Elliptical," "Grado Type," and "Twin Tip."
I have an older Grado stylus in my possession that appears to have a nude diamond, but without a microscope I can't tell what shape or size the diamond is. The color of the stylus grip and the color of the stylus dots are a match for at least three different types of discontinued Grado styli, all of which have different types of diamonds.
