About this deal

Would this work with rough stones? I mean rough diamonds ? And show the difference between man made and natural? OTHER STONE, if it's medium thermal conductivity, especially rubies and sapphires, plus anything really cold (which would give a 'slight' reaction on a standard row-of-LED-lights diamond tester)

De Beers Institute of Diamondsnow offers a Set Diamond Service, a diamond jewellery testing service designed to ensure that all diamonds within your jewellery are natural. you know, from your experience, that a customer is offering you paste, he says it's white sapphire, you need to show him the result on a machine, because customers believe machines rather than expert humans. When you have finished all your testing, remove the probe from the tester and put it safely away in its case. if you are quite happy to work slowly and carefully in laboratory-clean conditions but you must have a machine that will positively identify any stone: such a tester does not existTo test if a diamond is real, you will need to place the tip of the tester on the stone’s surface and detect the rate at which heat or electricity moves through the gem. If the diamond is genuine, the device will indicate that on the display and give a sound signal. What Type of Diamond Tester Is Better? If a stone is really cold, it will feel cold-to-the-touch even if it's not diamond, and will register as DIAMOND on a diamond tester. This is a problem if a customer brings you a stone that has been outside on a very cold day, or if you are buying at outdoor fairs and markets in the winter. Take the stones into the warm then wait a few minutes for them to reach room temperature. There are diamond testing devices for detecting loose or mounted stones, like the Gemlogis VISTA and VISTA PRO. Gives correct results about 95% of the time (6% false positive rate, 4.5% false negative rate) providing the colour is 'clear' (colour D to J) and the size is at least 0.02ct and the cut isn't shallow. Natural diamonds grow, naturally, deep in the earth as 'rough' diamond crystals (mined diamonds). Synthetic diamonds are grown by man in a laboratory. Synthetics and naturals are identical, they are both diamond. That is why it is so difficult to tell them apart; that is why these testers are expensive. Find out more about this at our guide to synthetic-diamond testing .

If a stone is very hot, it will feel warm-to-the-touch even if it is diamond, and will not register DIAMOND on a diamond tester. This happens when a diamond is taken from a shop window where hot lights or sunshine has heated it. It can be a problem in a heat wave, as the temperature approaches 30 degrees. Generally, high temperatures are not a problem here in the UK / Northern Europe. To get into greater detail, every gemstone has a unique chemical structure, so each one conducts heat and electricity differently. As a result, heat or electricity passes through an authentic diamond differently than a cubic zirconia. Are Diamond Testers Accurate? It is important to understand what these limitations mean, see our guide to synthetic-diamond testing. In addition, there is no machine that will distinguish natural gemstones (grown in the ground by nature) from synthetic stones (grown in a laboratory using the same chemicals and the same conditions found in nature). "Synthetic" is not to be confused with "imitation" (or "simulant") where one stone 'imitates' another, e.g. blue spinel might look like sapphire, but it isn't - it's spinel; Moissanite might look like diamond, but it isn't - it's Moissanite.Depending on the principle the tester utilizes, there are devices that measure the thermal conductivity or electrical conductivity of the stone and multi-testers that combine both methods. Diamond testers that use thermal conductivity measure the amount and speed with which heat travels through the stone, while the ones using electrical conductivity measure the amount and speed through which electricity travels through the gem. If you’re selecting a lab-created or natural diamond, make sure it’s certified by renowned institutes such as IGI and GIA. Certified diamonds are a good way to ensure authenticity, and they also come with details about the quality. Here is its full list of gemstones the Presidium handheld gem tester will detect (but please study the chart above, so see how the readings overlap!) - It depends on your diamond tester model. Some diamond testers make a sound to indicate that the test is over, while some will only show the readings on the meter.
