Instrument for immediate detection of Synthetic diamonds

Home - Blog Detail

Mumbai, 8th July 2016: To address the threat of undisclosed mixing of Synthetic diamonds with Natural Diamonds, the Gemmological Institute of India (GII), a project of GJEPC and co-sponsored by BDB has introduced a new instrument which immediately detects synthetic diamonds. The instrument which has been named as “Quick-Check”, has been designed by the in-house research team of the Gemmological Institute of India and Arotek.

The instrument can detect HPHT diamonds in a few seconds.

Quick-Check takes only a few seconds to scan the ‘High Pressure High Temperature’ (HPHT) type IIb diamonds once they are loaded in the detection chamber of the instrument. The instrument is simple to use and does not need a highly qualified professional to operate, unlike the currently available diamond detection instruments, which are technical and scientific and hence complex in nature.

Commenting on the induction of this instrument, Mr.Bakul Mehta, Chairman, Gemological Institute of India, said, “We will now be able to detect HPHT Type IIb synthetic diamonds immediately and with absolute results, with the introduction of ‘Quick-Check’. This affordable device will be able to curtail the threat of mixing of synthetic diamonds in the market.

Mr. Praveenshankar Pandya, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “We wish to safeguard ourselves against any threat of illicit mixing of synthetics with natural diamonds. With the advent of this instrument, the industry will benefit the most as the detection of synthetic diamonds with this instrument will help supply of natural diamonds to flourish. I am very impressed with the ease of use and affordability of this instrument”.
