GSI’s head of education,  Vidhya Mazumdar, conducted a short presentation on the difference between inclusions in natural versus synthetic diamonds and this was followed by an intense question and answer session, where various issues were addressed with regards to synthetic diamonds and their identification. 

The guests of honor included Dinesh Navadiya, the president of the Surat Diamond Association, and committee members. Other guests included diamond and jewelry manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and the media.
