Just a year ago, the diamond industry was in a panic: it looked like the diamond trade would never even come close to returning to pre-pandemic levels. However, 2021 has done a miracle! Sales of diamonds in the US set records! Market, back in 2019, hostile to stones with noticeable fluorescence, suddenly turned around sharply! Now, ultraviolet (UV) glowing diamonds in nightclubs seem to be the trend of the youth! In many ways, this is the merit of the domestic company Alrosa and the idea of its new brand "Luminous Diamonds".
However, we have to talk about Alrosa separately, in particular, about its division that deals with high-tech solutions: LLC Diamond Science and Technology Center (Alrosa Technology). The Alrosa Diamond Inspector (ADI) family of diamond detectors has been expanded with four new devices.
"Diamond Inspector" of the first generation is good for everyone, but the new device "Alrosa Diamond Inspector Wide Scope" (Eng. ADI Wide Scope) is even more interesting. Unlike its predecessor, this device is equipped with a flexible probe, which allows you to test diamonds and jewelry with them more quickly.
The device retained all the advantages of its predecessor. The main difference from the first version is that Alrosa Technology has managed to solve the problem of distinguishing type IIa diamonds in the new device. With the ADI Wide Scope, you can confidently distinguish between nitrogen-free natural and synthetic stones.

Version 2.0 was developed on the basis of Alrosa Diamond Inspector View (ADI View). At a fairly low price, this updated device has acquired a more advanced digital camera that allows you to accurately view the behavior of a diamond in the ultraviolet, including assessing the quality of grown diamonds.

The next device that should be specifically mentioned is Alrosa Diamond Inspector View FLU (ADI VIEW FLU)). Its peculiarity lies in the fact that it can accurately measure the level of fluorescence of a diamond, according to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
In total there are five categories of fluorescence: “absent” (English NONE), “weak” (English FAINT), “medium” (English MEDIUM), “strong” (English STRONG) and “very strong” (English VERY STRONG). This indicator significantly affects the final cost of the stone.

Last but not least, the new device is the Alrosa Diamond Inspector View Pro (ADI View Pro). This is the most expensive device from the entire line of Alrosa Technology. The device allows you to study the photoluminescence of diamond in three ranges of ultraviolet waves. In addition to LWUV (Eng.
Long Wave Ultra Violet - “Long-wave ultraviolet”) 365nm and SWUV (Short Wave Ultra Violet - “short-wave ultraviolet”) 254nm, ADI View Pro works with a completely unique EGUV range (Energy Gap Ultra Violet or “Energy Ultraviolet”) pits") 225nm. Most CVD-grown synthetic diamonds
under the influence of EGUV, show a bright red fluorescence, which almost unmistakably indicates the non-natural origin of the stone.

Who can benefit from the new devices?
- Pawnshops, buying houses, private gemological centers and other organizations involved in the examination, purchase and resale of diamond jewelry.
- Jewelry stores and boutiques specializing in the sale of natural or synthetic diamonds.
Sellers of natural stones will be able to show their customers the natural origin of diamonds. Dealers in "synthetics" will demonstrate the most beautiful phenomena of phosphorescence and fluorescence of a diamond and help the client choose the desired glow color.
Working with Alrosa Technology devices is simple and does not require abstruse training.
