12 august 2014

An Automated Melee Screening (AMS) machine was installed in the Diamond Detection Resource Center (DDRC) at Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) Mumbai recently by the Gemmological Institute of India (GII). The machine was inaugurated by industry leaders, Anoop V. Mehta, President, BDB and Arunkumar Mehta, Rosy Blue (India) Pvt. Ltd.
On the occasion, Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “We are glad to have the AMS machines in the center as they can rapidly detect synthetic stones in parcels of small diamonds ranging from 0.01 - 0.20 carats in a cost effective manner. It addresses a market need for rapid and affordable detection equipment for smaller sized diamonds, which will be of immense benefit to India. The DDRC will enable small traders, who cannot afford the machine, to get their parcels tested at an affordable cost. This will be a great support to the Diamond industry.”
He added, “I am pleased to inform that GII has already taken up the task of educating people and eliminating the fear of lab grown diamonds from the minds of the people through seminars in Surat, at Opera house and BKC in Mumbai, Coimbatore, and Cambay and are planning to hold seminars in other diamond centers as well.”
DDRC has been providing Detection services for all parcels received since last six months. The GII is a non-profit academic and R&D Institute under the GJEPC and is sponsored by other Trade Associations.
