The PhosView is a compact, self-contained screening device that can be used to quickly determine if parcels of polished stones contain potential high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) synthetics.
The unit can be used to screen colorless or near-colorless loose stones from0.003 carat to one carat; some set jewelry pieces may also be screened. It cannot be used to screen for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) synthetics, simulants, or any natural diamond treatments. When potential HPHT synthetics are detected, the machine’s built-in arms can be used to manually separate the stones from the remainder of the parcel. Any stones that are identified as potential HPHT synthetics should be submitted to a gem laboratory for further testing.
