SSEF introduces GemTOF to gemstone testing

The Swiss Gemmological Institute SSEF has become the first gem laboratory worldwide to introduce into its facility the ground-breaking GemTOF instrument, which conducts chemical analysis through laser ablation, thereby providing more information about the origin of a variety of gems, as well as precisely identifying almost all elements in coloured gemstones, diamonds and pearls.

Commencing 14th November 2016, SSEF will be routinely testing selected coloured gemstones submitted for testing using GemTOF. Please note that SSEF’s Terms & Conditions (on backside of new SSEF Order Form and on SSEF website) stipulate that unless explicitly excluded by the client in the order, GemTOF can be carried out on submitted Gemstone(s) without further note. Pearls and diamonds are not routinely tested using GemTOF.

A dedicated website on this method is now online, along with a video showcasing the technique.
