ALROSA DIAMOND INSPECTOR is after all a desktop instrument; it is unable to tell you everything about a gemstone. But it will make authentication much easier whether you use it on an individual gemstone or a piece of jewellery. Sometimes further testing may be needed, and the instrument will warn you about it. For example, the detector identifies a diamond as IIa. Such gemstones occur naturally, but can also be grown in a laboratory.
I'm using ALROSA DIAMOND INSPECTOR in my teaching activities - we studying with students the
properties of diamonds and their identification. One of its main advantages is the use of three
identification methods. Previously, I would have needed three devices to study the stone. Because the analysis of diamonds is multistage, and one method is not enough.
