Leo displays one of the following results:
- Earth mined
- Type II
- Cubic Zirconium
The “Type II” result could contain potential synthetic diamonds and diamonds. These referrals shall be tested by a gemmological laboratory for full verification.
Leo was tested in accordance with the Diamond Verification Instrument Standard with the test protocol for instruments that separate diamonds, synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants (Operation Category 3).
The tests took place at the independent laboratory UL in Canton, Massachusetts, United States.The tests were performed by a novice operator. Leo was tested with the ASSURE Core Sample.
The UL test summary report can be found here.
ASSURE Core Sample

|Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants incorrectly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of synthetic diamonds and diamond simulants||4.6%|
|Diamond Referral Rate||Percentage of diamonds being referred for further testing||3.7%|
|Diamond Accuracy||Percentage of diamonds correctly verified as 'diamond'||51.6%|
|Speed||Stones tested per hour||219|
