Gemmological Institue of India (GII) inaugurated the Automated Melee Screening (AMS) machine which is installed in the Diamond Detection Resource Center (DDRC) at Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB), Mumbai. Shri Anoop V. Mehta, President, BDB and Shri Arunkumar Mehta, Rosy Blue (India) Pvt. Ltd, inaugurated the machine.

Mr. Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said that, “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 for 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.”

Since six months of its operations, DDRC run by GII, has been working towards maintaining consumer confidence in diamonds and more specifically supporting the industry in the detection of synthetics. It has been providing detection services for all parcels received till date, and spreading awareness about lab grown diamonds and testing methods.

Mr. Shah shared GII’s efforts in furthering awareness and educating people to remove fear of synthetic diamonds, “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.”
