Besides the traditional gemological instruments, as part of its goal to provide highly reliable results, the E.G.L. Platinum laboratory is equipped with state-of-art scientific instruments, placing it parallel to the leading gemological laboratories worldwide. The suite of advanced instruments, used by the laboratory, is aimed to assist in confirmation of mineralogical identification, origin, treatments, and other properties.
Ultraviolet-visible spectrometer (abbreviated as UV-Vis) measures the absorption or reflectance of light from a substance in the ultraviolet to visible spectral region. The E.G.L. Platinum's UV-Vis device enables the identification of a diamond type, synthetic origin, geographical locality, and the existence of treatments (such as irradiation, coating, dyeing and fracture filling).
