The global production of synthetic rough gem diamonds through High-Pressure High- Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) Routes is estimated in the range of 1 to 2% by volume. Trade laboratories equipped with highly advanced analytical techniques and skilled man-power can detect and identify all types of loose and studded synthetic diamonds with absolute certainty. However, the problem arises when these are mixed in the parcels of natural melees and stars and one needs to check each and every stone in the parcel.With the availability of portable screening device like Automated Melee Screening (AMS) from De Beers, it is possible to screen 360 to 400 diamonds per hour. Though not available to us at present, Automated Spectral Diamond Inspection (ASDI) device from SSEF, Switzerland, can detect and identify 4000 stones per hour. In cases of wilful non-disclosure and misrepresentation, the trade bodies like Natural Diamond Monitoring Committee formed by GJEPC at national level, and WFDB & IDMA at international level could play an important role by taking appropriate measures from time to time. The details of HPHT and CVD processes to manufacture these diamonds and scientific techniques to identify them will be explained.
