RAPAPORT... ALROSA will launch its synthetic-diamond detector in May at the Mediterranean Gemmological and Jewellery Conference in Syracuse, Italy.

The portable machine screens loose polished diamonds and jewelry, identifying synthetics as well as treated stones or simulants.

Three gemologists, including conference chairs Branko Deljanin and George Spyromilios, will test the machine with 50 samples of natural, treated and synthetic diamonds on May 11 and 12, Deljanin said Monday.

The launch comes after De Beers introduced its latest automatic device for screening melee at the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show last week.
