The first Russian portable device for diamond identification ALROSA DIAMOND INSPECTOR showed high results in ASSURE project testing, held in an independent laboratory UL Verification Services, Inc. in Boston (USA). Due to three optical methods of analysis, ease of use and low cost in comparison with analogs, Russian device perfectly suits retail shops, pawnshops, distributors, gemological laboratories, jewelry manufacturers, as well as when making business trips and contacting business deals.
The testing was held in July 2019 as a part of ASSURE project of Diamond Producers Association (DPA). This project aims at the development and application of unified standard evaluation of the effectiveness of tools and special equipment for diamond identification.
In total almost 1,400 samples were involved in the ALROSA DIAMOND INSPECTOR testing process, including natural I/II type diamonds, synthetic diamonds, among them samples unavailable on the market, which were grown by using the most advanced technologies, and
non-diamond imitations (cubic zirconias, moissanites etc.).
According to the results of testing, ALROSA DIAMOND INSPECTOR showed an almost one hundred percent result of detecting natural diamonds, accurately detected synthetic diamonds and was the only device that showed one hundred percent result in detecting non-diamond imitations (simulants).
