Looks at surface fluorescence by illuminating with short-wave ultra-violet light.
Standard magnification Size range: 0.05ct - 10.00ct - High Magnification size range: 0.01ct-0.20ct - Designed to work with the DiamondSure and AMS machines
Colourless HPHT synthetics showing blocky growth sectors

Showing a ‘G filtered’ image where the blue fluorescence is removed to reveal ‘synthetic’ features such as growth
Image showing a 0.20ct Type I natural stone under DiamondView high magnification
Diamond showing natural octahedral growth banding
O filtered image in which the striations are clearly visible

The DiamondSure, AMS and DiamondView are designed for looking at diamonds, synthetics and simulants. The DiamondPLus is for diamonds only.
DiamondSure, 0.10 – 10cts
DiamondView, standard magnification for stones mainly in the 0.05 – 10cts size range, and high magnification for viewing for melee sized goods 0.01–0.20 ct, such as AMS referrals and for viewing fine detail on large stones
DiamondPLus, 0.05 – 10cts
AMS, 0.01 – 0.20ct
DiamondSure, colourless, near-colourless & yellow
DiamondView, all colours
DiamondPLus, colourless, near-colourless & brown
AMS, colourless, near-colourless & yellow
All the instruments are designed for looking at polished gemstones. As-grown synthetic stones have a very different shape to natural diamonds therefore should be easily distinguished by eye. It is when they are polished that it becomes more challenging.
Although the instruments are mainly for gemstone use, the DiamondView is also a very good research tool for looking at polished samples and cross-sections.
The DiamondSure and DiamondPLus are very simple to use therefore a manual and a quick step guide is sufficient.
The DiamondView however does need more training as the user needs to be able to capture and interpret a fluorescence image of the stone. Example images are provided with the software and a training day can be provided at our Maidenhead, UK office.
For AMS IIDGR sends an engineer to you facility to carry out the installation and provide user training.
All the instruments come with a one year parts and service warranty. This is extended for AMS under the terms of the annual fee.
You can request support via our website. Go to Instrument Support.
Yes the standard practice is that a manual is supplied in the language of the country of destination. If this is a new destination there may be a small delay whilst the manual is translated.
Technical support can be offered from the UK by phone, email or web conferencing tools. We have an engineer based in India, who you may be referred to.
Yes all of the instruments are CE marked; details of compliance to specific international standards can be found on the individual certificates of conformity which are available upon request.
Yes they are and this is declared on the declaration of conformity.
Yes, all instruments are FCC compliant.
No, the manufacturers of the instruments do not have ISO9000 registration.
