hi,

we have just published an application note about Large amount of pink and blue CVD-grown synthetic diamonds on the market. we saw with our own eyes HUGE quantity of these stones from a single guy who came to the booth in Tucson. Enjoy the reading.

Thanks Alberto & Mikko,

Though I'm not really a diamond guy it's nice that the first notification comes from GO

The pinks don't look as pink as I'd like on my monitor but those blues are beauties.

be well you two.

best regards

Frank

(edited due to stupid question before reading the whole article...good work guys)

Fascinating! I agree with Frank ... the pink doesn't look all that appealing on my monitor, either, but the blue sure is nice. Do you know if the brown could be lessened in the pink by any means?

Pure pink CVD stones exists for sure, but these particular stones are more orangish brownish pinks, actually kinda color shift stones. Depending on light source someone could report them even as orange or brown. We tried to catch the true color as good as possible for photos.
