Distinguish diamonds from imitations
The Alpha Diamond Analyzer has been designed to perform reliable diamond detection and type screening. It distinguishes diamonds from imitations or other precious gemstones. In addition, its accurate and reliable determination of the diamond type allows you to select potentially HPHT treated or synthetic colourless diamonds for further testing. Finally, the Alpha Diamond Analyzer helps you to identify specific diamond types, and consequently, to create the highest added value in gem diamond sorting and valuing.
Done in 60 seconds
The Alpha Diamond Analyzer uses Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) absorption spectroscopy, an established optical technique used to obtain molecular information from a gemstone. The analysis is performed contact-free, within less than 60 seconds.
As the measured FT-IR spectrum is directly related to the chemical structure and composition of the gemstone, it gives a reliable differentiation between diamonds and imitations. Impurities within the diamonds (nitrogen and boron) give unique signatures in the FT-IR spectrum, which can be used for classification of the different types of diamonds.
Diamond Type identification
Identification of the diamond type is critical. With the increasing availability and complexity of treated and synthetic diamonds, any diamond professional will benefit from an adequate diamond type identification, enhancing consumer confidence.
