I mentionned some solid document about HPHT treatments in another thread, I'm now searching for such exhaustive documentation about irradiation treatments. I had found a very good paper dealing with that specific matter some times ago but unfortunately I cannot remember where. If you can point me to such document(s) that would be very much appreciated :-)

Interesting documentation Danielle, thank you.

I'm after any documentation that deals specifically with irradiation treatments of diamonds. Ideally a summary of all kinds of irradiation treatments of diamond, detailing starting material (type of diamond, original color), type of radiation used (electrons, neutrons, gamma tays, ions...), color obtained after irradiation, and obtained color after subsequent annealing.
