The SDS II uses advanced technology that measures a diamond’s UV light transmittance ability. It is a portable desktop diamond verification instrument suitable for both loose and mounted stones, including melees as small as 0.02ct. Easy to use and battery-operated, its indicator light bars give a blue light to indicate that the stone is a Type la diamond and a red light to indicate a Type IIa diamond. The device gives clear and accurate results within two seconds.
Helps to screen out Type IIa colorless diamond, which is likely to be laboratory-grown and created through chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or high pressure high temperature (HPHT) syntheses, from the natural Type Ia colorless diamond.
Enhanced with additional features, the Synthetic Diamond Screener II now tests for diamond melees as small as 0.02 carats with instantaneous results, through the measurement of UV absorption.
The lead time on shipping this item is about 4 to 5 business days.
