It is a Luminescence based instrument with sample holder size 11cmX6cm for quick detection of synthetic diamonds (HPHT & CVD) in near colourless to tinted coloured (not fancy colours) diamonds; loose diamond in transparent plastic bags, sample plates and/or in studded Jewellery can easily be identified.
The machine can identify any size starting from -2 or (half cent) onwards.
It is very simple and easy to operate. In a matter of 7-21 secs nearly 1200 stones can be identified.
