Crystallex Issues Update on Amex Halt

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Crystallex International Corporation (TSX:KRY)(NYSE Amex:KRY) has been advised by the NYSE Amex that trading in its common shares has been halted by the NYSE Amex based upon its determination that the Company no longer meets the qualitative standards for continued listing because NYSE Amex believes at this time that the Company is no longer an operating Company.
