G-Certain by Massive Tech Lab
G-Certain is a desktop diamond verification instrument for loose and mounted diamonds. G-Certain is designed to separate synthetic diamonds from diamonds. G-Certain is manually operated but gives an automatic test result. G-Certain is suitable for an environment where you need to test both mounted and loose diamonds e.g. dealers, diamond and jewellery manufacturers, retailers, buyers and gemmological laboratories.

How Does it Operate?
The user manually places the loose or mounted stones inside the specially designed test chamber of the instrument. To start the testing, the user closes the test chamber and press the start button.
G-Certain automatically makes a measurement and displays one of the following results:
2. ‘Synthetic diamond’
3. ‘Check with fluorescent light’
G-Certain was tested in accordance with the Diamond Verification Instrument Standard with the test protocol for instruments that separate diamonds from synthetic diamonds (Operation Category 1).
The tests took place at the independent laboratory UL in Canton, Massachusetts, United States. The tests were performed by a novice operator. G-Certain was tested with the ASSURE Core Sample and the ASSURE Smalls Sample.
The UL test report including more detailed test results can be found here.
ASSURE Core Sample
The ASSURE Core Sample consists of 1,000 loose diamonds and 200 loose synthetic diamonds. The stones are 0.02 ct to 0.20 ct in D-J colour. The below results are from the test with the ASSURE Core Sample.
|Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of synthetic diamonds incorrectly classified as ‘diamond’ to the total number of synthetic diamonds||17.6%|
|Diamond Referral Rate||Ratio of diamonds being referred for further testing to the total number of diamonds||0.2%|
|Diamond Accuracy||Ratio of diamonds correctly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of diamonds||99.7%|
|Speed||Stones tested per hour||908|
ASSURE Smalls Sample
The ASSURE Smalls Sample consists of 1,000 loose diamonds and 200 loose synthetic diamonds. The stones are 0.005 ct to 0.02 ct in D-J colour. The below results are from the test with the ASSURE Smalls Sample.
|Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of synthetic diamonds incorrectly classified as ‘diamond’ to the total number of synthetic diamonds||4.7%|
|Diamond Referral Rate||Ratio of diamonds being referred for further testing to the total number of diamonds||0.6%|
|Diamond Accuracy||Ratio of diamonds correctly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of diamonds||99.3%|
|Speed||Stones tested per hour||908|
