HRD Antwerp To Unveil Melee Screening Device At HK Fair

Diamond certification laboratory HRD Antwerp has announced that it will be unveiling a new Automated Melee Screening Device, known as M-Screen, at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair. The device, developed in a collaborative effort between the Scientific and Technical Research Center for Diamond (WTOCD) and HRD Antwerp, promises to provide ‘a super-fast table-top automatic melee screener' for commercial use. "These days, differentiating natural diamonds from laboratory-grown (synthetic) diamonds is becoming more and more difficult," says the announcement, which explains that the current process of identifying synthetic diamonds can be costly and often outweighs the value of the smaller diamonds. That is where the M-Screen is expected to fill the gap. HRD Antwerp will be providing live demonstrations of the M-Screen at their booth at the Hong Kong show.
